Philosophy Works

Red Bank Charter School

58 Oakland St.
Red Bank, NJ 07701

Philosophy Works is a series of 10-weekly meetings designed to encourage students to gain access to inner happiness, wisdom and strength. The basic assumption of the course is that within each of us is an inexhaustible source of nourishment, well-being and understanding. If this is so, why is our daily experience often marked by stress and uncertainty? With this question the work of Practical Philosophy begins. Practical Philosophy is not an academic survey of great philosophical ideas as one might find in a university. Rather, the aim of the course is to invite students to put great philosophical ideas into practice in order to live compassionate, reasonable lives and thereby serve society. The proof of practical philosophy's effectiveness is found in personal experience. No previous study of Philosophy is required. The course is accessible to all who are sincerely interested in self-discovery, regardless of ethnic or religious background. All that is needed is an open mind and a willingness to examine the ideas that govern one's life under the light of Philosophy. The School's courses are inspired by the philosophy of Advaita ("not two"), but embrace a wide range of philosophers, thinkers and writers.
