Since last year in Ottawa these posters have been appearing on telephone polls advertising an opportunity to become a philosopher. It's from a group calling themselves New Acropolis.
Here are some juicy quotes from their web site (which sells books on fairies and Atlantis):
I have looked a few of their websites and it seems to be that they teach some valid historical philosophy with a lot of newage mixed in.
I have been googling them, searching for outside critics but I haven't found much of anything besides a legal incident in France where they were declared a cult but then that designation was rescinded.
They seem to be mostly harmless and they wouldn't have drawn my attention at all accept for their appropriation of the word philosopher which I find presumptuous. I'm just surprised on how little I found on them good or bad. They seem to have been operating off the radar for quite some time. Does anyone have some good 3rd party information or sites on them? And does anyone know who this J. A. Livraga person is?
