What Life and the Universe are all about - Philosophy & NLP

Kevin Downsworth

2022 Conference

Bertrand Russell once remarked that “the point of philosophy is to start with something so simple as not to seem worth stating and to end with something so paradoxical that no one will believe it.”

In this session you will discover how many of the thought-provoking and paradox-shifting ideas from philosophy have influenced the ‘NLP mindset’. We will utilise the key human characteristics of wonder, curiosity, exploration and discovery and consider the question “How do we come to know what we know?”

You may recognise by the end of the session that you don’t in fact know anything, an awareness that helped Socrates pride himself on being the wisest of men.
