UP OpenHeart Philosophy

OpenHeart philosophy is philosophy with a purpose, its slogan: stand and be counted. It is based on the premise that philosophy can and should address important real human problems by methods which include analysis, judgement, guesswork and empathy. Confusions arising from language are pitfalls to be avoided rather than important problems to be addressed. Pursuit of truth is not an end in itself, but a means to more important ends.

OpenHeart Philosophy can be the intellectual and emotional core of your own personal religion in which logic and faith stand side by side. No amount of logical analysis will tell us what purposes we should adopt or what ends we should strive for, and without the guiding light which our own humanity can alone provide our intellectual endeavours may be misdirected and ineffective. After all the cerebration, act from the heart.
