In this thirty-first episode of the Wisdom for Life radio show, hosts Dan Hayes and Greg Sadler discuss the topic of Philosophy As A Way Of Life. This was a common, recurring, and traditional approach in philosophy until roughly the last two centuries. For this episode, Greg and Dan interviewed one of the present-day experts in this field, John Sellars, one of the co-founders of Modern Stoicism, ltd, professor of philosophy at Royal Holloway College in London, and the author of many books and articles on the matter.
They discuss what Philosophy As A Way Of Life is and what its main characteristics are, how it differs from standard types of academic philosophy, the importance of philosophical practices, and a number of other related topics.
