Welcome on Board!

Hello! Thanks so much for signing up to become a member of Looking for Wisdom. Your support means that Looking for Wisdom can continue to grow and develop.

I'm Dr. Will Buckingham and for the last two decades, I have taught philosophy in universities and community settings around the world. In late 2020, during Covid-19 lockdown, I started to think about new approaches to teaching philosophy and building philosophical communities. And in this way, Looking for Wisdom was born.

Philosophy by email

As a member, you can participate in our ongoing philosophy courses by email, and get stuck into discussion in the Agora discussion forum. I'll send you your link to join the forum in the next 48 hours.

The courses run six times a year for seven weeks at a time. In 2021, the courses will be on the following themes:

  • Jan-Feb 2021: Wisdom
  • Mar-Apr 2021: Love
  • May-Jun 2021: Work
  • Jul-Aug 2021: Home
  • Sep-Oct 2021: Friendship
  • Nov-Dec 2021: Strangers

Every Thursday, you'll also receive a Philosopher File, featuring thinkers from across the world's philosophical traditions.

Looking for Wisdom is advertising-free and built for security from the ground up (using the wonderful Ghost). You can read about the site's privacy policy by clicking here.
