Working at “Philosophy Speed”

Andy Farrant

In my professional practice I like to do one thing each year that is a reward for me, and last year’s was the Violence & Society alumni symposium. It’s marvellous knowing you’ve essentially got two days with the phone off. You’ve mentally told the world to take a flying leap. The focus of the intellect is drawing on the wisdom and guidance of the readings and the instructors. It followed on from the Colloquium a number of years ago.

Cranlana for me is a place where I go so deep inside my head. As a result, things happen at what I’ve come to call “Philosophy Speed” – which is not rushed, it is fuelled by reflection and a search for answers. For me, it adds a vital dimension to a lived life.
