Back in 2014, we told you about how The Institute of Art and Ideas (IAI) launched IAI Academy — an online educational platform that features free courses from world-leading scholars “on the ideas that matter.” They have since put online a number of philosophy courses, many striving to address questions that affect our lives today. We’ve listed a number of them below, and added them to our list of 150+ Free Online Philosophy courses. For a complete list of IAI Academy courses, visit this page.
