The School of Life and Spaces have joined hands to create a series of events intended to rethink the way we work. From a philosophical standpoint with a professional touch, we will reshape, reimagine and reinvent work as we know it. By discussing topics such as being more creative at work, becoming convincing and more influential, workplace happiness, and working to make the world a better place, the philosophers and the creative thinkers of The School of Life will challenge your every assumption and offer a new perspective for the future.
Spaces offers creative working environments with a unique entrepreneurial spirit at 100 locations all over the world. Originating in Amsterdam, Spaces was built on the idea that success breeds more success. At Spaces they redefine the way work is done within a community of thinkers, achievers and imagineers.
Vol. 3 // Work and Happiness
The society we live in requires us to work. And in turn, it provides for us, creates social contacts and allows us to develop our skills. But does our work also make us happy? Philosopher Menno de Bree argues that it can't. Whether you agree or not, it's sure to spark the debate. Which side are you on?
This event will took place on the 9th of July between 17:00 en 19:00 at Spaces, Vijzelstraat. TICKETS
Vol. 2 // Influence
Aristotle is one of the most influential thinkers of all time and he teaches us rhetoric; the art of influencing others. How can you influence people by using rational thinking, emotions and your personality? Philosopher Remko van Broekhoven will teach you this fine art.
Vol. 1 // Creativity
According to Einstein we are all born a genius, thank goodness. But if you want to keep up in a world that is changing rapidly, you need to be creative. Why be held back by the age-old mythe that creativity is just for a lucky few? Frits Philips will help you to rediscover your own creative potential.
