  1. Ways of life as modes of presentation.Michael-John Turp & Brylea Hollinshead - 2021 - Human Affairs 31 (4):429-438.
    Books and journal articles have become the dominant modes of presentation in contemporary philosophy.

    For ancient philosophers, philosophy was not only a theory about the big questions but also a way of life, yet it was not only a way of life but also a theory. Pierre Hadot showed the importance of philosophy as a way of life in antiquity. Moreover, he defended, as this paper demonstrates, the view that ancient philosophy was primarily a way of life and that philosophical discourse or theory played a secondary role. The paper argues against Hadot, taking the (...)
