Dr John Sellars (Royal Holloway, University of London),  ‘Aristotle and Philosophy as a Way of Life’


Pierre Hadot famously stated that in antiquity philosophy was understood primarily as a way of life. At first glance, it is far from clear that Aristotle understood philosophy in this way. If Aristotle turned out not to fit with Hadot’s model, that would appear to be a serious problem, for it is difficult to take seriously any account of ancient philosophy if it cannot accommodate Aristotle. This talk will consider whether Aristotle can be accommodated within Hadot’s conception of ancient philosophy.
