030046 Philosophy as a way of life (Steinkrüger)

Event Timeslots (1)

Ever since the inception of philosophy, philosophers have been concerned with the nature of philosophy itself. Closely related to this is another metaphilosophical question: What is philosophy good for? One answer to these questions, which ancient philosophers first proposed, is that philosophy is a way of life. In the seminar, we will study this conception of philosophy as articulated by various authors across different epochs in the history of philosophy.
