Philosophy as a way of life Pdf This publication presents a history of spiritual exercises from Socrates to early Christianity, an account of their decrease in contemporary doctrine, and a discussion of the various conceptions of doctrine that have accompanied the trajectory and fate of the theory and practice of spiritual exercises. Hadota s publication demonstrates the degree to which doctrine has been, and is, above all a way of viewing and of being in the entire world.
Hadot’s job is extremely engaging, knowledgeable, well written and enlightening. I strongly suggest this publication for both general and professional readers” Richard S.
