Not only does religion offer happiness, but so does philosophy, especially Classical Greek philosophy. Several leading figures in Classical Greek philosophy set forth their ideas not separate from intuition on divinity. For them, human rationality grows with faith in a good life. Rationality is what can make people achieve happiness and make themselves resemble the divine. They offer philosophy as a way of life. This course offers studies of how people can live rationally, with virtue, optimally, and still be “religious” by following the ideas of four main schools of classical philosophy from the Greek-Hellenistic period: Platonism, Aristotelism, Stoisism and Neoplatonism.
This series of lectures is presented by Augustinus Setyo Wibowo (Romo Setyo), lecturer at the Sekolah Tinggi Filsafat Driyarkara, Jakarta. Romo Setyo holds a Baccalaureate in Theology (1996-1999) from Pontificià Università Gregoriana, Rome, Italy. He attained a master of philosophy (2001), the degree DEA (2003) and doctorate in philosophy (2007) from Université Paris I–Panthéon Sorbonne, Paris, with this last degree under the guidance of Luc Brisson.
There is a fee for these philosophy classes which constitute a complete series. We suggest joining all the classes.
