Keeping Philosophy Alive
In this account, which is sure to delight more than one philosophy instructor, Guy Ferland describes the original, exhaustive exploration contained in La philosophie comme mode de vie (Philosophy as a Way of Life) by Daniel Desroches. According to Ferland, the volume constitutes a solid introduction to the initial spectrum of ancient thought and the first schools of philosophy. More than that, he says, the book could appeal to any reader looking to establish connections between this discipline, the customs and practices of Greek and Latin thinkers, and the daily realities of the 21st century. What is special about the analysis is that it consists of an invitation to “live philosophy” at all times.
