John Cooper delivered the John Locke Lectures at Oxford this year on “Ancient Greek Philosophy as a Way of Life” examining four ancient philosophies: Socrates, Aristotelianism, Stoicism, and Platonism (mostly on Plotinus).
Lecture 1: Philosophy in Antiquity as a Way of Life (handout)
Lecture 2: Aristotle’s Philosophy as Two Ways of Life
Lecture 3: The Stoic Way of Life (handout)
Lecture 4: Platonism as a Way of Life (handout)
The last lecture was the most interesting for me as it has the most to bear on our understanding of the intellectual world within which Christianity swam from the 3rd-6th century.
