Description


Take a relaxing stroll through Hyde Park and stretch your mind.

In just half an hour you’ll realise that the definition of knowledge is pretty tricky, and in fact, you might decide that you don't actually ‘know’ anything at all!

In this fun philosophy class I'll lead a fun discussion on what constitutes knowledge - how can we truly know something?
E.g.
- Do you know something just because you believe in it?
- Is belief a sufficient condition for knowledge?
- Is belief a necessary condition for knowledge?
- What other conditions do we need for knowledge?

What will we cover?

- Introduction to the field of philosophy, and how philosophers build and defeat arguments
- Some initial ideas from how prominent philosophers have tried to define knowledge
- You get to challenge these philosophers (with my help), and maybe create your own definition!

What will you walk away with?

- You'll build your skills with logic and reasoning (which can help you whether you're building or critiquing an argument at work, or whether you're finding holes in your partner's excuse for not doing the house chores)
- You’ll have a great topic of conversation for your next water-cooler chat / date / catch-up

If the weather is bad or if you hate trees, we can go to a nearby cafe instead. Let's philosophise!

Have been teaching for 10+ years and still loving it!


Hi there!

I'm a big fan of origami (a self-taught addict from a young age) and philosophy (I studied it at Sydney University), and I absolutely love teaching - it puts a big smile on my face to be able to give knowledge and skills to others!

Stretch your perspectives and/or your fingers with me. I'll make it a fun and thought-provoking experience.

As the Head of Strategy at THE ICONIC, I know working life can get a bit hectic - that’s why it’s important to take a break every now and then, temporarily focus on something completely different, be in the moment, recharge and broaden your thinking.

I look forward to meeting you at one of my future classes!

Really thought-provoking and interesting, I would highly recommend it. Iain got through a lot in just 30 minutes, and my colleagues and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
