What does "philosophise" mean?

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. << read more >>

   Philo Wandering 

"Wandering and philosophising with children and adults"

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). <<< Anmeldung & Info >>>

"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.

The "Oasis of Life Questions"


Oase der Lebensfragen in Wien19
The Oasis with Torsten Büsing

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.
