This unique collection of essays on the late Pierre Hadot's revolutionary approach to studying and practising philosophy traces the links between his work and that of thinkers from Wittgenstein to the French postmodernists. It shows how his secular spiritual exercises expand our horizons, enabling us to be in a fuller, more authentic way. -Comprehensive treatment of a neglected theme: philosophy's practical relevance in our lives -Interdisciplinary analysis reflects the wide influence of Hadot's thought -Explores the links between Hadot's ideas and those of a wealth of ancient and modern thinkers, including the French postmodernists -Offers a practical 'third way' in philosophy beyond the dichotomy of Continental and analytical traditions
