Stephen Silver has been interested in practical philosophy for over forty years and is a great lover of the Bhagavad Gītā. Before retirement he worked in IT Project Management, mainly in the public sector. He leads Practical Philosophy Berkshire, a branch of the Fellowship of the School of Economic Science. Practical Philosophy is the exploration of knowledge, wisdom and ideas that can be used to make sense of the world. It is about discovering the truth of things – not in theory, but in one’s own experience.
