The Philosophy Foundation

Founded in 2007 The Philosophy Foundation conducts philosophical enquiry in schools, communities, and workplaces.

Our mission is to bring understanding, wisdom and eudaimonia (flourishing) to the heart of education for children and adults.

We believe that reasoning skills developed through philosophical enquiry are an indispensable foundation of all aspects of learning and that Philosophy, like maths, music or physical education, is intrinsically worth doing and intrinsically engaging.

All our philosophers hold a bachelor’s degree in philosophy, and are trained to work in the specific setting where they conduct their enquiries, from infant classrooms to A Level and HE. Our overall aim is to equip our beneficiaries to participate fully in society.
