Is philosophy restricted to books and concepts or is it possible to live the wisdom of the ancient masters in our everyday life? Our Practical Philosophy seeks answers to these very questions of the contemporary world.
‘Living Philosophy’ is the foundation of a journey to discover and experience the deeper esoteric concepts of self, nature and humanity.
Philosophy as a way of life begins foremost with an inward journey and when practiced, it finds its true essence of transformation of the self and that of the world around us.
The sessions provide a glimpse into the sources of wisdom with a comparative study of Classical philosophies across ancient cultures and civilizations. Through the classes, we unfold the path of philosophy from Knowledge to Wisdom and from learning to living, as we uncover the mysteries of human consciousness and development.
The foundation course is the first level of study of Philosophy being taught at numerous centers of New Acropolis International Organization in over 50 countries for many years.
This unique program of philosophy is a pre-requisite for membership to the organization as well to continue subsequent advance programs of philosophy.

Our PrinciplesNew Acropolis is an international philosophical organization which is based on three founding principles:
FraternityTo promote an Ideal of international fraternity, based on respect for human dignity, beyond racial, sexual, cultural, religious, social or other differences.It is necessary to promote respect for different identities and traditions, and at the same time to strengthen unity beyond differences, to harmonize people, ideas and feelings in an enriching and open coexistence. The strength of this ideal of fraternity lies more in what unites us than in what separates us. It is firmly based on a recognition of universal values, which, while respecting diversity, transcend local practices and customs and come together in a set of common ethical principles that are inherent in the dignity of every human being. This ideal promotes respect for and promotion of human rights, as well as the recognition of certain principles of universal ethics.
KnowledgeTo encourage the love of wisdom through the comparative study of philosophies, religions, sciences and arts, in order to promote the knowledge of the human being, the laws of Nature and the Universe.The love of truth and knowledge sets out from the legitimate aspiration to develop one’s own discernment and understanding of the world and oneself. We understand philosophy as an axis that connects the different facets and angles of human knowledge. Philosophy can bring together the sources of the past and the present in that global, broad and integrating vision, so that it becomes a real force for progress, which seeks not only to explore the paths of life, but to go deeply into its ultimate ends, and tries to combine all aspects of knowledge and experience.
DevelopmentTo develop the best of the human potential, by promoting the realization of the human being as an individual and his or her integration as an active and conscious part of society and nature, in order to improve the world.Our work results in better individuals who bring sustainability to social development. The human being still has an enormous latent potential. To know it and develop it is one of the fundamental pillars of life itself and provides a source of lasting satisfaction. The achievement of harmony between thought, feeling and action is a goal for every human being. A balanced and all-round development of oneself, and the actualization of the best qualities and values of our human nature, are probably the only guarantee of moving towards a better world.
