As an example Hutchinson referred to the book Made For Happiness by Jean Vanier. All we can hope for now is for Vanier to get the spelling correct. The second announcement was with respect to the Scribes and Scholars project. Hutchinson noted that as far as he or any of his colleagues were aware, a project like this has never before been attempted. The purpose of the project is to show how much one can retrodict of an ancient text. Next Hutchinson moved on to his lecture on Aristippus of Cyrene. He referred to Aristippus as a coulourful figure who forms a bridge between the Epicureans and Socrates; this bridge however is both tenuous and arguable for many. Here Hutchinson turned our focus back to the central figure of Socrates, and noted that Aristippus was a man who studied with Socrates yet had ideas and students of his own. It seems to me that Socrates also encouraged his associates to practice self-discipline with regards to food and drink and sex and sleep and heat and cold and physical exertion by discourses like the one which follows.
Conceptions Of Philosophy K. BOUDOURIS (ED.), CONCEPTIONS OF philosophy. ancient AND MODERN MARK ANDREW HOLOWCHAK, ancient AND MODERN CONCEPTIONS OF philosophy AS A WAY OF LIFE. http://www.hri.org/iagp/books/vol45.html
Extractions: IONIA PUBLICATIONS, ATHENS 2004, pp. 416. Answering various philosophical questions, and particularly "Wherefore philosophy?" (that is, what is the use of philosophy, is philosophy necessary for life), the Stagirite philosopher seems to have proposed the following, short and concise answer: "Either one philosophises or does not philosophise, one has to philosophise. So, whatever the case may be, one needs to philosophise". This indicates that philosophy and philosophising, which originate in wonder, are at the same time a necessary and qualitative element of every culture. However, if it is necessary to philosophise, the further question that is raised is related to the content, way and method of philosphising. Since by doing philosophy one attempts to give answers to crucially important questions regarding human life and natural world in their truth, various philosphers invented different ways and paths of research. This is why philosophy has its history, i.e. has its beginning and course in time. In this long period of time from the Pre-socratics until now, various methods of philosophising were used, and all of them together constitute the concept and content of philosophy. That which constitutes the content of philosophy is not something static but rather a developing in time, so that there emerged differentiation in philosophising among various thinkers of different peoples and nations concerning the essence, the structure, the function and the aim of philosophising. In Greek culture, philosophy, apart from other things, was conceived as a choice of life (áßñåóéò âßïõ), e.g. as a decision that a philosopher thinker has to make and follow constistently, so that there would be harmony between his philosophical beliefs and his way of life. Thus, philosophy is not concidered as an insignificant activity that would be separated from the state of affairs of social and political life.

Extractions: The single most important philosophy in Rome was Stoicism, which originated in Hellenistic Greece. The contents of the philosophy were particularly amenable to the Roman world view, especially since the Stoic insistence on acceptance of all situations, including adverse ones, seemed to reproduce what the Romans considered their crowning achievement: virtus, or "manliness," or "toughness." The centerpiece of Stoic philosophy was the concept of the logos. The universe is ordered by God and this order is the logos , which means "rational order" or "meaning" of the universe. After the death of Zeno of Citium, the Stoic school was headed by Cleanthes and Chrysippus, and its teachings were carried to Rome in 155 by Diogenes of Babylon. There its tenets were made popular by Panaetius, friend of the great general Scipio Aemilianus, and by Posidonius, who was a friend of Pompey (see your textbook if you don't recognize these names); Cicero drew heavily on the works of both. Stoic ideas appear in the greatest work of Roman literature, Vergil's

For Epicurus the aim of life was pleasure; the highest pleasure was absence of pain; pleasure of the mind was preferable to that of the body. The soul dies with the body, so we must not fear death or afterlife; the gods exist but do not concern themselves with humanity or natural phenomena (all of which can be explained scientifically); we should avoid public life and emotional commitments in order to escape the pains likely to be caused by them. The physical world was explained by the atomic theory adapted from Democritus. Stoicism .
