The Contemplative’s Socrates: A Dialogue

I’ll be in dialogue with David Collins (@bodhidave3) at The Stoa on August 20.

We’ll be discussing Dave’s latest article for TSV, “The Contemplative’s Socrates.”

RSVP here for access.

Dave will highlight Socrates’ daemonic and spiritual side, offering the perspective that the origins of Western philosophy were rooted as much in contemplative practice as in rational argument.

I’ll draw from some of my own research to ask Dave about the relation between spiritual exercise and reason, using insights from Pierre Hadot.
