New Acropolis UK is a registered educational charity and part of an international network of affiliated organisations in more than 60 countries, working in the fields of Philosophy, Culture and Volunteering.

Our purpose is to make widely accessible a holistic philosophical education which can help us to understand and develop ourselves and to work together in order to meet the challenges of our times.

We understand philosophy in its classical sense as philo-sophia – love of wisdom. Wisdom is practical and active rather than purely intellectual. It is knowing how to act, knowing what is 'good' and knowing which ends are worth striving for.
