What’s it all about?

The essential ethics toolbox: learn the principles and methods you need to answer every question, and overcome problems life can throw at you.

What will we cover?

  • Can’t find time for your ideals in day-to-day life? Or do your attempts to be a good person leave you worn out and exhausted?
  • Ever wondered what you, personally, should feel responsible for in life? How to draw the line?
  • Ever wondered if watching something bad happen is any different to actually doing it yourself?
  • Ever felt paralysed by uncertainty as result?

Featuring four practical tools and two methods, this class will answer all these questions and more. This is your ticket to taking control of your life from the foundations, upwards.
