Item description for Philosophy as Life Path by Romano Màdera & Luigi Vero Tarca...

Conventional wisdom regarding philosophy - even among philosophers themselves - is that it is a school of thought whose purpose is to examine other schools of thought, scientific or ethical, in order to assay their reliability. Since its beginnings, however, philosophy has meant the search for the wisdom that is born of life experience and which is transmitted through spiritual exercise, one aspect of which was the creation of strictly theoretical approaches. This book illustrates the motives for the long-standing neglect of this important dimension as well as the reasons why its reconceptualization today - in a format appropriate to modern realities - is both possible and exhilarating. This volume proposes a renewed approach to philosophy, an approach whose integration of theory and biography draws from philosophy's rich origins but which also unifies the truths behind these new philosophical approaches - for example, in private therapy or group formation - which in recent decades have spread so rapidly in Europe and throughout the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Philosophy as Life Path?

By Annalisa Degradi, Andrea Tagliapietra and Felicitas Munzel   Jun 11, 2008
"In a culture in which knowledge tends to remain extremely specialized and isolated within narrow academic disciplines, Màdera and Tarca propose to restore philosophy's function as a tool for the study of our relationship with existence itself.... Philosophy springs from life and it is life to which it returns."
"The philosophical approaches that Màdera and Tarca propose in this genuine `manifesto' of a new practice and understanding of philosophy are the indivisible integration of theory and biography ... they recoup philosophy's original `therapeutic' dimension as a `spiritual exercise' in which the `care of the self' and self-realization go hand in hand with the ethical concept of collectivity - that is, the peaceful cohabitation and communion of the planetary community."
"I do want to support the renewal of the classical conception of philosophy as paideia and so as fundamentally a way of life, the way of life consonant with the dignity of what it means to be a human being."
