AUTHOR

Michael Chase, Pierre Hadot

SUMMARY

"Through the last 40 years or so, the 80-year-old Hadot has returned again and again to particular themes--that philosophy is a lived experience, not a set of doctrines; that philosophers consequently should be judged by how they live their lives, what they do, not what they say; that philosophy is best pursued orally, in dialogue and community, not through written texts and lectures; that philosophy as it is taught in universities today is for the most part a distortion of its original, therapeutic impulse. In WHAT IS ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY? Hadot brings all his concerns together in a small volume of extraordinary erudition and surprising--for a French intellectual--clarity of prose (as translated by Michael Chase). It is the summa of a distinguished career."Michael Chase is the author of 'What Is Ancient Philosophy?', published 2004 under ISBN 9780674013735 and ISBN 0674013735.
