Hadot, Spirituality and philosophy as a way of life seminar Tues April 20 online

Follow THEOLOGY@Brisbane on

The expression ‘philosophy as a way of life’ emerged in the writings of Pierre Hadot as a tool for making sense of some of those who are referred to as ‘ancient philosophers’. Perhaps unsurprisingly, however, it has since served as a source of inspiration for how philosophy might be conceived, and indeed rejuvenated, today. DATE: Tuesday, April 20 TIME: 1 PM Princeton time (EST) / 8 PM Bucharest time (GMT+2) (Must be about 3 am Australian time) PANEL: Hadot, Spiritual Exercises, and Philosophy as a Way of LifeSPEAKERS: Sorana Corneanu (University of Bucharest), Dana Jalobeanu (University of Bucharest), Paul Lodge (University of Oxford) ABSTRACTS:Reading, meditation and enactment: Hadot’s formative exegetics Dana Jalobeanu (University of Bucharest)In my paper I am trying to reassess some of Pierre Hadot’s contributions to the history of philosophy from the perspective of the ‘practice turn’ we are all living through in the later years (especially those of us dealing with history of science). I will be looking at a particular class of spiritual exercises (“imaginative spiritual exercises”) and show what we gain if we think of them as recorded (philosophical) practices.
