Reviving Philosophy as a Way of Life

A two-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty examining six ancient and modern philosophical approaches to living a good life.

A two-week NEH Summer Institute for college and university faculty focusing on the idea of "Philosophy as a Way of Life" is to be held at Wesleyan University in July of 2018. This Institute will gather together philosophers who have taught "way of life" classes and allow them to share their insights, experiences, and pedagogical strategies with other professors looking to adopt this model in their classrooms, and will also include sessions led by experts on specific “way of life” approaches.
