About Ereignis Institute

Ereignis Institute prepares the ground for enhanced perception and the good life. We provide incisive lectures available at your convenience, with optional readings, and assignments to check your learning. Typical study time for each course module is 12 weeks. Our approach to the question of how to live well owes much to the ethical tradition from Epicurus: friendly to science, fiercely sense-oriented, and dedicated to the presumption that our actions are oriented towards achieving pleasure and peace of mind.

Technology we take to mean way, as it is derived from the Greek techne, the crafts. While in the philosophical tradition techne was increasingly made to contrast with episteme, theory, we regard craft and theory, practice and knowledge, as intimately connected and ultimately inseparable.

At Ereignis Institute we reach out to those who want to improve their skills to think and perceive, and to those who want to acquire more in-depth knowledge. Our modules are suitable for anyone interested in philosophy, whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, or a professional who want to further exercise your ability to think thoroughly and profoundly about important questions that define our lives. While not required, some previous knowledge of philosophy may be an advantage.

Each of our courses include:

  • 3.5 to 7.5 hours of lectures on video, recorded by international experts in their fields;
  • complimentary lecture notes, reading lists, and exercises;
  • Course Diploma (beta version).
