 About New Acropolis Nashville

We are a group of volunteers, dedicated to helping all people in metro-Nashville live more meaningful and thoughtful lives through classes in eastern and western philosophy, seminars, and community service. We aim to help move society towards greater degrees of self-knowledge and social responsibility through the promotion of philosophy, culture and volunteering. At New Acropolis, someone can volunteer for a park cleanup, or study the rich symbolism of Ancient Egypt in our Symbology class. Our activities are varied because human beings need a variety of experiences to help them come to “know themselves”, as the ancient, Pre-Socratic philosophers used to say.


Classic Philosophy for Today’s Living

We offer a comprehensive program of studies which begins with the first course series:  Classic Philosophy for Today’s Living. Our curriculum gives students a strong foundation of traditional knowledge which, like classical humanism, brings together sciences, arts, religions and philosophies in a comparative way and which reveals the laws governing nature and the human being.Through our courses, we promote the enduring value of philosophy as “love of wisdom,” a profound search for truth and meaning. Philosophy is about improving ourselves, and changing the world we live in by “being that change.” Every activity at New Acropolis embodies this philosophical spirit.


Quote of the Week

“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow:  our life is the creation of our mind.”
