In December I shall be going to Australia to speak at the ASCP conference in Melbourne. My talk will be entitled: 'What is Philosophy as a Way of Life?'. Here's a brief outline:
What is philosophy as a way of life? Is it a distinctive approach to philosophy? Is it closely aligned with continental philosophy? Does it offer a third way, distinct from both analytic and continental philosophy? Is all philosophy potentially life-changing? Do we lose something important if we conceive philosophy as a practical therapeutic exercise? I shall attempt to address all these questions, drawing on Lucretius for my final response.
Then, in March 2017, I shall be going to speak at a conference in Budapest on The Stoic Tradition. There is a call for papers here.
