While there is no guidebook for life, philosophers have had incredibly insightful things to say about existence for thousands of years. We shine a light on those nuggets of wisdom to help you navigate an increasingly complex, information-saturated world. You can learn more about our views on the power of philosophy in our quick article on why philosophy matters today.
Philosophy, though wonderful, can be dense and confusing. For those unfamiliar with the subject, it can also be very difficult to know where to start. So, having received great value from studying philosophy for 15+ years (picking up a master’s degree along the way), I founded Philosophy Break in 2018 to distill my meandering philosophical education into ultra-concise online learning materials, available to all.
Fast forward to today, and Philosophy Break receives millions of online visits annually from people looking to add the mind-opening wisdom of philosophy to their lives via our online philosophy courses, our philosophy reading lists, our introductory philosophy articles, and our weekly emails distilling philosophy’s most powerful ideas.
I’m thrilled that our content strikes a chord with so many thinkers from around the world — and I hope you’ll find value in the project, too.
