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: philosophya€™s practical relevance in our lives Interdisciplinary analysis reflects the wide influence of Hadota€™s thought Explores the links between Hadota€™s ideas and those of a wealth of ancient and modern thinkers, including the French postmodernists Offers a practical a€˜third waya€™ in philosophy beyond the dichotomy of Continental and analytical traditions
