I’ve been studying a lot of ancient philosophy recently. Most of it is fascinating, but some of it is a bit tricky to apply to my life. I think that it’s mainly because the world has changed so much – concepts like intersectionality, for example, weren’t exactly topical in Socrates’s day – and we as a society might have grown out of some of these ideas.
I’ve developed a quick slideshow about Practical Philosophy, ie, philosophies that can be applied readily to the contemporary person’s life. Take a look if you’re interested!
