I’ve studied ancient religions and philosophies, the history of science, and hold a PhD in philosophy and intellectual history. Yet in modern times, most philosophy has become a dead way of looking at the world. But it wasn’t always that way. For the ancient Greeks — like Socrates, Plato, and the Stoics — philosophy was a journey rooted in friendship. It was a way of traveling together, to discover deeper truths about the world and about our own human nature. Throughout my work, I’ve attempted to build bridges between the world of learning and modern life — and to extend these ancient ideas of learning and knowledge into the present. Please join me on this journey and in these conversations.
