The International School of Philosophy CIC was founded in 2016 by Dr Sam Fremantle, who was also one of the founders of the London School of Philosophy. Its aim is to provide University standard online courses in philosophy, and to pioneer a 'bespoke' approach to teaching the subject, where students can choose for themselves what they need in the way of seminars, tutorials and other forms of online support. The school is a Community Interest Company. This is a special type of limited company that must observe restrictions on the disposal of its assets and profits to ensure that the company benefits the community, not simply its shareholders. Sam likes to think that his favourite political philosopher, John Stuart Mill, whose thought combined a championship of individual freedom over state control with a recognition of the individual's responsibility to promote the general good, would approve.
