Vivekānanda on Education:
To me, the very essence of education is the concentration of mind, not collection of facts. If I had to do my education once again, I would not study facts at all. I would develop the power of concentration and detachment, and then, with a perfect instrument, collect facts at will.

About The School

The School of Philosophy Sussex was established in 1978 as a branch of the School of Philosophy and Economic Science, a registered educational charity, headquartered in London. The School has numerous branches in the UK and affiliated Schools worldwide.

The School is a centre for spiritual knowledge and practice and aims to help men and women lead fuller, richer and more useful lives based on natural laws and Advaita philosophy. Our courses in Philosophy and Economics with Justice reflect these principles.


While drawing on the philosophical traditions of the East and West, the School’s main point of reference is our contact with the living tradition of Advaita philosophy, a universal teaching literally meaning ‘not two’, in India.

Central to the teaching are the practices of raising Awareness, Mindfulness and Meditation.

Economics with Justice

The School takes the view that the study and practice of economics has to be founded on principles of justice and equity and that economic injustices indicate failures to understand or observe basic principles of economics.
