Darren Harper – (Philosophy & Philosophical Writing)

Adult education tutor for Cumbria in Philosophy & Literature, college teacher in English and currently reading for an MA in Philosophy

With Darren’s help, we aim to enable students to develop a deeper engagement with the world, using a juxtaposition of high and low culture, and a variety of sources including film and literature) to make classes engaging, as well as thought provoking.



Darren is now focusing on two aspects related to Philosophy:

  • The study of ways of thinking
  • The expression of thinking

We design our courses to meet the expectations of three particular types of student:

  • those who already have undergone some Philosophy studies including those who feel ready to tackle the meaty stuff
  • those who would enjoy a user-friendly introduction to themes. Look out especially for Darren’s courses titled THE LAZY PHILOSOPHER’S GUIDE TO…
  • those who wish to express thoughts on paper through PHILOSOPHICAL WRITING
