Pencil Set | Philosophical | The School of Life

A set of six pencils featuring key words from the field of philosophy.

All subjects have their specialized vocabularies; a set of words that initially sound unusual, even a touch frightening, but that can also prove oddly beautiful and beguiling.

To their enemies, key words are mere jargon, but jargon has its advantages: it allows us swiftly to get a firm hold of ideas that might otherwise have been confusing and cumbersome. They also provide touching evidence of the existence of a group of people who have come together to agree on the meaning of some dauntingly fiddly things.

Each set features six key words, and contains a booklet which perfectly explains what these words mean and why they should matter. An ideal combination of the thought-provoking, the attractive and the useful.

Key words from Philosophy:

  • Eudaimonia
  • Akrasia
  • Platonic
  • Phenomenology
  • Logic
  • Dialectic
