Tim Beardmore-Gray runs Philosophy Classes (Discussion & Writing) for Open Age on Fridays. Read more about the classes and others in An Open Letter of Thanks by John Kohut, Open Age Member.

“What is the self? Are we born with a self or does it develop over time? What distinguishes one self from another self? When does a self stop existing?

The Open age philosophy group dive into one of life’s great conundrums and share their thoughts on what might, or might not, lie at the centre of an individual’s existence.

After previously looking at the western philosophical traditions of dualism and monism this session explores alternative views of the self such as African communalism and the Buddhist idea of non-self.”

Still need convincing? Read John's words about just how good Tim is, just how valuable Open Age is... An Open Letter of Thanks by John Kohut. "It would be inconceivable to me and I believe to others to try to get through the next few months without Open Age Zoom classes".
