Philosophy as a Way of Life Group

The Philosophy as a Way of Life Group provides faculty and students from all disciplines the opportunity to investigate what it is to adopt philosophy as a way of life. Topics and readings are decided by members of the group at the start of each semester. Examples of topics include virtue, friendship, love, attention, how best to relate to one’s emotions, what it is to value or care about something, and what is required to live a meaningful or valuable life. Members of the group discuss the readings and then devise experiments in living to try out or test the ideas from them. The group also aims to develop research projects on topics related to living philosophically. If you are interested in joining this group, or have any questions about it, please contact Jacob Stump, Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy.
