Education Crisis

NEW LEFT PROJECT

New Left Project is dedicated to producing high quality comment and analysis on issues of concern to the political left (broadly defined). We are not affiliated to any particular party, tendency or strand of thought. Rather, we seek to contribute towards a lively, inclusive culture of left-wing discussion, appealing both to those who already consider themselves to be of the left, and to any others who have an interest in its ideas and priorities.

Our site contains a mixture of short, timely content on our blog as well as more detailed, in-depth treatment of various subjects through our feature articles, interviews and NLP-hosted debates. We are developing more audio/visual content as the site evolves, as well as branching out into organising live events. In addition to broadening the forms of content we produce, we are always looking to expand the range of topics that NLP covers, from current affairs to theory, philosophy and culture.

We welcome unsolicited contributions, as well as comments on any of our published content. We hope you enjoy the site.

The Philosophy Takeaway

THE PHILOSOPHY TAKEAWAY

We are a group of humans, mainly philosophy students, graduates and self taught philosophers who believe philosophy is essential for society and that it has been in the background for too long; it is time to bring it to light!

Philosophy should be on the lips of the people, not locked up in old books with complicated names. We want to wake up the inner philosopher in you. There is a stereotype that philosophers tend to be old men with beards and pipes (a bit like some people see God?); we want to break this narrow perception. We want to provide a space for people old and young, from all non-/religious and ethnic backgrounds and from all levels of learning – then we will cultivate an interest in Philosophy.

Whether you feel that you don’t know anything about it, or you have a curiosity about it, or you are a seasoned philosophy student or reader, come and engage in philosophical chat, start a game of chess or lets share anecdotes and make this day meaningful! We will explore everyday areas of life as they turn philosophical.

Our ultimate goal is to create a free school of philosophy, with its modest gates open to all who are inclined towards it. Your visit to our website is a step in that direction…… http://www.thephilosophytakeaway.com/  

It doesn’t matter what level of philosophical knowledge you have, we promise to give you something to think about!

Come along and let your mind explore.
