Description

Guided by one of the greatest specialists on the subject, we are plunged into the sources of philosophy, and meet the first Greek thinkers and the questions they asked: What is a life of a wise man? What defines Good? How is philosophy a skill?
Pierre Hadot here shows us in great detail that the different forms of ancient philosophy are above all a means of living a better life: Plato, Pythagoras and Aristotle founded schools; the Epicureans, the Stoics and many others recommended the practice of spiritual exercises aimed at transforming the individual. Discovering ancient philosophy is seeing that philosophising is not a solely cerebral activity, but a decision to live differently, in harmony with the world, others and oneself.
A timeline, an index of proper nouns and a conceptual index complete this scholarly but highly accessible book.
