PHILOSOPHY AS A WAY OF LIFE
COURSE

WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

In ancient times, philosophy was not seen as a merely academic pursuit but as a way of living. The French philosopher Pierre Hadot, said: “During this period, philosophy was a way of life … Philosophy was a mode of existing-in-the-world, which had to be practiced at each instant, and the goal of which was to transform the whole of the individual's life.”

What are the principles of day to day living that will withstand pressure and change?

How can philosophy become a way of life?

What is the relationship between balance and rhythm?

How can we live in a large, universal world instead of a tiny house?
