Philosophy As a Way of Life - Historical, Contemporary, and Pedagogical Perspectives

Author(s): James M. Ambury (Editor); Tushar Irani (Editor); Kathleen Wallace (Editor)

Science & Philosophy

In the ancient world, philosophy was understood to be a practical guide for living, or even itself a way of life. This volume of essays brings historical views about philosophy as a way of life, coupled with their modern equivalents, more prevalently into the domain of the contemporary scholarly world.

  • Illustrates how the articulation of philosophy as a way of life and its pedagogical implementation advances the love of wisdom
  • Questions how we might convey the love of wisdom as not only a body of dogmatic principles and axiomatic truths but also a lived exercise that can be practiced
  • Offers a collection of essays on an emerging field of philosophical research
  • Essential reading for academics, researchers and scholars of philosophy, moral philosophy, and pedagogy; also business and professional people who have an interest in expanding their horizons
