More discourse than lecture, Practical Wisdom Workshops offer you the opportunity to engage with the subject matter, question and discuss with like minded people. Join the discovery of practical wisdom and how it could be applied in daily life. Sessions are limited to 20 attendees.
ECONOMICS#2 – sadly in disrepute but never more important:three discussion evenings on Justice, Mother earth, and the Dignity of work.
The key participant in economic life is the human being, whose ultimate purpose of participation is to do with the ‘world of spirit’. The aim of participation is that all may be happy and have well-being; and thus experience the opportunity to work freely, willingly, and gladly toward a satisfying life and the perfection of human nature.
PRESENTERS - Warwick Brewster and Dr. John Tippet.
Warwick Brewster was a pioneer in the integrated design and construction approach to commercial/industrial building, forming his own company in the early 1970’s, and of which he was CEO for 16 years. Relationships between management, clients, staff, sub-contractors and suppliers were of paramount importance to the success of the business. He became head of the Building Construction department at RMIT University, delivering and overseeing lectures in costing, design/construction, staff management and client satisfaction. Warwick’s keen interest in property led him to take up responsibility for the acquisition and management of various School of Philosophy properties (both purchased and leased). He has been a respected student and tutor in the SoP for some 40 years.
John Tippett has been involved intimately in the study of economics from a very early age, having been born into a farming family, studying agricultural science and then economics at both the University of Melbourne and Monash University, and teaching economics for some 40 years. This interest and involvement has been in conjunction with a keen and dedicated study of practical philosophy in the Melbourne School of Philosophy – hence his deep interest in human nature and the effect of economic life upon that nature.
