The Way of Philosophy

Traditionally, there are three ways that a man or woman may come to realize his or her own self, the Way of Action, the Way Devotion and the Way of Knowledge. Practical Philosophy brings these three ways together as a fourth way, applying ancient teachings to modern living. This forth way is the Way of the Householder. These 11 week courses at the School of Practical Philosophy are grouped together as The Way of Philosophy.

red  The Way of the Householder

When ancient philosophy first began, it was a way of life for the ‘householder’. It was “a mode of existing-in-the-world, which had to be practiced at each instant. Philosophy was a way of life, both in its exercise and effort to achieve wisdom, and in its goal, wisdom itself. For real wisdom does not merely cause us to know: it makes us “be” in a different way. Such is the lesson of ancient philosophy: an invitation to each human being to transform himself. Philosophy is a conversion, a transformation of one’s way of being and living, and a quest for wisdom.” (Pierre Hadot, Philosophy as a Way of Life)

The Way of the Householder 11 week course explores how a person living in the world, participating fully in life in the roles one has been given or chosen and at the same time being and living from real wisdom.
