Do you wonder whether you are missing something? Missing larger questions, deeper issues, fuller understanding, greater purpose? Are you not sure where to start, how to pose your questions, where to go for answers, how to explain yourself to others, or how to arrive at an understanding you can live with? Are there issues eating away at you, dilemmas confronting you, questions calling you, or simply larger topics you would love to explore? Do you wonder how philosophy might help with all this?
Philosophy means “the love of wisdom.” Long before becoming a narrow academic specialization it addressed the largest and most urgent questions in life. For centuries, philosophy was regarded as a transformative way of life – a way of thinking and acting in pursuit of virtue, wisdom, wonder, justice and the good life.
Larger Questions is inspired by the original premise and promise of philosophy – the belief that philosophy can be more, that we become more, when we bring philosophy to life. It was founded to help you experience philosophy - to pause, step back, widen the frame, rise higher, go deeper. To explore the most important questions – your most important questions – through a breadth of philosophical perspectives and insights, and enriching and clarifying dialogue, in a relaxed and confidential environment. This can help you address larger questions. It can help you discover new ideas, new understandings, new wisdom – help bring philosophy to life – and in doing so, to discover new life.
“…a philosophical problem has the form: ‘I don’t know my way about.’”
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations (1953)
