What is philosophising, and what are the benefits today of philosophy. To Pierre Hadot, philosophy is an art of living. It is also a form of spiritual exercise that, when carried out, profoundly transforms us, and may even prepare us for mystical experience.
Pierre Hadot shares his love of philosophy with us, from the great names of Antiquity, such as Marcus Aurelius or Plotinus, to the modern-day philosophers.
By following Pierre Hadot, we learn to read and interpret ancient wisdom, and the way in which the philosophy of the ancients can help us lead a better life. And if “to philosophise, is to learn to die”, we must also learn to “live for the moment present, live as if we were seeing the world for the last time, but also for the first time.”
