I'm not sure if this is the right place for a question about an introductory, and supposedly non-academic, philosophy course, rather than for an actual philosophical question, but here goes. There's an organisation in the UK called the School of Economic Science that is offering a 10 week Practical Philosophy course (www.practicalphilosophy.co.uk), which on the surface appears to cover all the kinds of (high level) introductory subjects that you'd expect from a Western philosophy course. However the history of the School seems to be based on Indian philosophy, and specifically Advaita Vedanta, so I was wondering if anyone knew of the school or its teachings, and specifically is the course one to attend for someone interested in Western philosophy please?
