Event description

Description

The major religions are all centrally concerned with the spiritual life – with its nature, and with what it takes for human beings to be formed so as to lead such a life. And some have proposed that in its origins, philosophy was fundamentally a spiritual discipline. As Pierre Hadot has put the point, for the philosophical schools of ancient Greece, philosophy was ‘a way of life’, and theorising a secondary activity, worthwhile only in so far as it served the way of life. So both as philosophers and as scholars of religion, philosophers of religion have good reason to study the spiritual life.
