Course Description

This course is about the practice of philosophy in everyday life. Philosophy, as conceived by Socrates and his followers, is not only a matter of reflection, argument, and discussion. It also invites us to be, feel, and act in certain ways. It is a way of approaching the world in relationships, at work, at meals, and in solitude – as well as in the classroom. Our coursework will combine traditional readings from Ancient Greece and Rome with exercises designed to help you live like a Socratic, an Aristotelian, an Epicurean, or a Stoic. Ultimately, our goal is to help you become wiser and to lead a better life through the practice of philosophy
