Event details

We call those who are indifferent stoic, those who enjoy themselves epicurean or hedonistic. If we travel in the Mediterranean region, ancient ruins, porticoes or cities are reminiscent of the Epicureans and Stoics, two philosophical schools that arose in the fourth century BC. At first glance, not much seems to have remained. During these philosophy days we will get to know Epicurus and Lucretius as well as representatives of the Stoa such as Epictetus and Seneca and their numerous successors and will discuss to what extent they can continue to help us to deal with the big questions of life. Course leader After studying natural sciences, Suzann-Viola Renninger received her doctorate in philosophy from the University of Munich. She currently teaches philosophy, ethics and philosophy of science at the University of Zurich and heads the department of philosophy at the adult education center in Zurich.
