In this episode we are joined by Matthew Sharpe – Associate Professor of Philosophy at Deakin University – in order to explore the tremendous richness of ancient western contemplative techniques and practices. In particular, we explore the views and practices of the Stoics and rescue the ancient meaning of the philosopher as he or she who loves wisdom. In part, this follows from the ideas of the 20th century French philosopher, Pierre Hadot, and his conception of ‘philosophy as a way of life.’
