Six Philosophies as Ways of Life!

January 25, 2012 – John Cooper gives the first of two lectures in the Tanner Lecture Series – Stanford University. This first lecture focuses on some of the ancient philosophies of Aristotle and how they apply to life today.

The book entitled “Pursuits of Wisdom: Six Ways of Life in Ancient Philosophy from Socrates to Plotinus”, like Pierre Hadot, discerns within the ancient Greek tradition practitioners of philosophy distinct from the more academic variety found amongst university scholars today and for whom philosophy as a way of life is perhaps quite irrelevant.
