Welcome to the School of Economic Science

The School of Economic Science is a centre for spiritual and practical knowledge and enquiry. Our aim is to help anyone who seeks it to lead a fuller, richer and more useful life and to evolve the spiritual aspects of their being in accordance with natural laws.

This aim is pursued mainly by offering innovative courses in practical, living philosophy inspired by the philosophy of Advaita or unity, and economics with justice.

Philosophy and economics are directly related because, ultimately, economic life depends on the philosophy underlying economic systems and on the philosophic culture of the people living and working in an economy.

We offer a wide range of other courses, inspired by the broad principles of practical philosophy & economics, as well as seminars, workshops, concerts and lectures.

We are a registered charity, founded in 1937.

Due to popular demand we’re extending our offer of free introductory courses (apart from a £10 registration fee) in Practical Philosophy and Economics with Justice to the Summer term.
Courses start 27 April 2015
