Individual training online
For those wishing to train in philosophical practice, the Institute of Philosophical Practices offers individual training, online, using Zoom or Skype and Google Docs. It is a program of ten weekly sessions, 90 minutes, accompanied by individual work, with a philosopher practitioner. The goal is to discover and practice different philosophical skills: to practice argumentation, analysis, conceptualization, problematization, etc. The program is built on various themes.
- reflections around a Buddhist tale.
- Interpretation of a Chekhov story.
- How to problematize with questions.
- Study of texts by Nietzsche, Spinoza and Hegel.
- How to do a self-consultation.
- How to evaluate someone based on their answers to a series of questions.
- Interpretation of a Raphael painting.
Anyone interested can ask to watch the video of a session in order to better understand the work.
These courses can be held in different languages: English, French, Spanish, Italian and Russian.

For those who do not wish to work via Skype, we also offer a written online training program.
Just like for audiovisual tutoring, you will be assigned a philosopher practitioner, who will send you regular exercises, followed by a rapid feedback on the work done.
This can take different forms:
- In marathon, daily, intensive (for 15 days or one month)
- In a more leisurely way, 1 or 2 times a week (time to be determined)
For example: You receive an exercise on Monday. For Thursday, the exercise must be done. In less than a day, the tutor evaluates the exercise, and sends you a new one, which must be returned for the following Sunday.
The exchange can take place on the platform of your choice (WhatsApp, Messenger, Viber etc.), although the best is to work directly on a Google doc.
The work can take place in two ways: either by theme (philosophical texts, stories, musical works, paintings and others.) It is also possible to propose a theme. The second option is a work on philosophical skills (arguing, problematizing, conceptualizing, evaluating, interpreting, questioning, presupposing).
