From “Offenders” to Philosophers

29 03 2014

Read about the extraordinary work that Nikki Cameron and the Low Moss Philosophy Club are doing to raise consciousness in prisons by teaching philosophy. Low Moss emphasise the Stoic idea that although we lack control over many aspects of our environment, we do have some choice over own thoughts, beliefs and actions. That although we may not control the past or the future, we can control the present. That although we cannot control what has already happened to us, we are still able to control how we respond to it.

Jules Evans (Philosophy for Life) writes about their work here:
