Philosophising means actively dealing with a topic,
with your fellow human beings and your environment in a protected
environment. This is done through practical exercises and a philosophical
discussion in a group in a protected, respectful setting.
The academy has combined methods of philosophising from p4c (philosophy
for children) to the Socratic conversation and merged it to a
comprehensive cultural technique. We offer a diverse range of courses and
educational programs. Philosophising is suitable for children and young
people as well as for adults of all professions.

"Wandering and philosophising with children and adults"
Sat. 30. September 2023, 13 – 16 p.m.
Join us on
a foray through the Vienna Woods Biosphere Park and marvel at the nature
on your doorstep. Find out what rituals and meditations Native American
tribes did in nature. The cultural technique of philosophising in the
form of a guided conversation means immersing yourself in a topic such
as mindfulness or sustainability and doing research on it in the group.
The program is led by Uly Paya (Philosophy Academy) and Sandra Atac
(Biosphere Special Agent).

Sahra Ücelehan for the great teamwork!
edulands for transitions
We have been invited by the University of Applied
Arts to take part in the Erasmus+ project "edulands for transitions". In
addition to Austria, Spain, Italy and Georgia are also "participating".
The aim of edulands for transitions 1 is to develop tools that close
gaps between social, emotional and natural heritage, local landscape and
sustainability and contribute to a practice-oriented and co-developed
pedagogy for sustainability and education in the 21st century .
The suitcase market serves artists to offer their craft,
to revitalize the district of Döbling and to offer musicians a platform.
There is again high-quality art such as knitwear,
upcycled art, design fashion, scarves, shawls,
Life art cards, pictures, jewellery, dolls, gifts...
free entree! children are welcome!
"What role does education play
in times of crisis"
A moving mind and body are essential to a healthy
immune system. Many fears could not arise at all if we dealt more with
the really important issues in life in advance:
"Where does man come from?"
"What does life actually mean and what is death?"
"Where does humor come from and why does it even exist?"
"How do we actually want to live?"
"What would a good education be?" ...
But where in the current media and consumer landscape can we talk about
such topics in an impartial manner? When we philosophise, we can
research such important life issues in a group, and not just in a
crisis. It is perhaps the best immunization against the mental and
emotional burdens of our time caused by pandemics or war.
Shouldn't we be offering new cultural techniques to future generations,
in addition to knowledge, in order to develop our attitude towards
ourselves and towards the community? That would probably be timely
education. And it would be sustainable and healing.
Schon wieder wird zu Beginn der Sommerzeit an der Uhr gedreht. Wir
nehmen dies zum Anlass, um über die Frage „was ist Zeit?“ zu
philosophieren. Welche Fragen wollen wir noch stellen und welche
Antworten können uns auch die Uhren im
Museum geben? Alle Fragen und Antworten sind erlaubt und möglich!

The "Oasis of Life Questions" has been in front of the Academy building and opposite the Neulandschule since 2019. It is a "Graetzloase" in Vienna initiated by the Academy, which wants to recapture public space for the general public. It is currently the first and only "parklet" in the 19th district, i.e. it is there instead of parked cars and serves as a place for passers-by or schoolchildren to stay, to study and of course to think.
