This course, expands on our universal desire for Freedom and examines Freedom as an outer phenomenon, linked to the world around us. In this way it is complementary to the course, ‘Freedom Within ’, because the inner and outer aspects are inextricably linked.
Freedom depends on our use of Reason, so we look at some models of the mind and learn the guiding principles for reason. This enables us to look at the idea of Economic Freedom and the concepts of Ubuntu, the life-force and community. Also consider the greater humanity, what it means to be human and the natural laws relating to this. So we look at the ‘sanatan dharma’ or ‘eternal law’ and also Plato’s description of the soul.
