PATHWAYS TO PHILOSOPHY
Online philosophy courses leading to Associate and Fellowship awards from the International Society for Philosophers and Diploma and BA degree from the University of London

"Philosophy is the ultimate expression of human freedom. We believe in freedom of thought and expression but also in the responsibility that goes with that freedom. As philosophers, we value and respect those whose views differ from our own.
"Our mission is to teach the world to philosophize."

Choosing your own Pathway
Pathways offers an exciting range of options. However, if you ask the following simple questions, it is easy to find the Pathway that is ideal for you:
— are you a beginner, or have you studied philosophy before?
— do you want to follow a set program of study, or would you prefer to devise your own program?
— is there a time frame within which you would like your studies to be completed?
— are you looking for an accredited course which leads to a recognized qualification?
— what are you hoping to do after you finish your studies with Pathways?
If you would like advice about your philosophical pathway, email the Director of Studies Dr Geoffrey Klempner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
