The Philosophy Foundation


raised from 5


thinking changes in schools, business and communities

Today more than ever we need the understanding, critical thinking skills and perspective that philosophy brings. Founded in 2007 The Philosophy Foundation’s mission is to bring understanding, wisdom and flourishing to the heart of education for children and adults. We do this primarily by facilitating philosophical enquiry in schools, as well as other learning communities (such as prisons, hospital schools, with children in care) and in the workplace.

We believe that reasoning skills developed through philosophical enquiry are an indispensable foundation of all aspects of learning and that Philosophy, like maths, music or physical education, is intrinsically worth doing and intrinsically engaging.

Our overall aim is to equip our beneficiaries to participate fully in society. We achieve this through working directly with children in schools, or adults in other learning environments, by training and by developing resources.
