We firmly believe that creativity is what adds definition and novelty to life. We teach tools and methods of creative thinking in order to enhance the quality of our productive endeavors.
Whether any of us know it or not, we all live according to a personal philosophy, our only choice is whether we choose to define it rationally.
We study Novels to discover our potential in the heroes we read.
Our team of intellectuals host a series of presentations, workshops, and programs throughout the year on a diverse range of topics using philosophy as our guide to finding meaning and happiness in our lives.
Our academy has an exalted view of what human beings can be. We believe that each one of us has the capacity to become a real-life hero – one who possesses an elevated moral status, whose intellectual posture is self-made and whose self-esteem is unbreachable; we exist to help you achieve that vision.
However, we can only be successful once we learn how to sculpt our minds. That is why we teach specific methods on how to think critically, and how to understand our emotions using a philosophy of reason — reason being a process of thought which is not an automatic function of the mind, but a method which must be learned and practiced.
We also ensure that philosophy is pertinent to everyone by investigating current ideas in our culture as well as timeless works of literature, art, and movies in order to help us understand life’s deepest questions: on who we really are, what we can become, and what can help us achieve happiness.
We offer a curriculum of workshops, classes, and mentorship programs that are themed around six philosophical questions that we’ve all encountered throughout our lives. We believe that through the process of thinking and articulating our answers, we are taking the necessary steps needed to sculpt ourselves into the ideal heroes we admire.
Our six themesWe have designed our curriculum around 6 key themes which we believe are essential to building a meaningful life.
– Who am I?
– Where am I?
– How do I know?
– How should I live?
– How should I treat others?
– How can I fuel my life?
