Ancient philosophy was conceived as a way of life or an art of living, but if ancient philosophers did think that philosophy should transform an individual's way of life, then what conception of philosophy stands behind this claim? John Sellars explores this question through a detailed account of ancient Stoic ideas about the nature and function of philosophy. He considers the Socratic background to Stoic thinking about philosophy and Sceptical objections raised by Sextus Empiricus, and offers readings of late Stoic texts by Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius. Sellars argues that the conception of philosophy as an 'art of living', inaugurated by Socrates and developed by the Stoics, has persisted since antiquity and remains a living alternative to modern attempts to assimilate philosophy to the natural sciences. It also enables us to rethink the relationship between an individual's philosophy and their biography. The book appears here in paperback for the first time with a new Preface by the author.

Philip E. Muskett, former Surgeon Superintendent to the NSW government, wrote in 1893: “...our people live in direct opposition to their semi-tropical environment ... the consumption of butcher’s meat and tea is enormously in excess of any common sense requirements ..” The Art of Living in Australia offers advice for healthy living. In an effort to promote better eating-habits, Muskett presents a carefully researched picture of climate; of the history of cookery instruction in schools; of the value of salads; of problems and methods of management, current in 1893, in the fishing, oyster growing and wine making industries. The book was dedicated with “hope for the development of all the great natural food industries of our country”. Reading it today, we have a measure to show how far we have come. First published in 1893.

Excerpt from The Art of Living Long: A New and Improved English Version of the Treatise Against diseases known, the strongest fence Is the defensive virtue, abstinence. - Benjamin Franklin. For a people of whom less than a two-hundredth part of one per cent. reach an age that Nature intends all should pass, the words of the aged author of "La Vita Sobria" possess a deep import. To them this volume is addressed. Louis Cornaro's own account - written toward the close of more than a century of life - of the means of his complete restoration from an almost hopeless complication of bodily infirmities, to the happy state he continued so long to enjoy, may be said to form a life story, which, in its peculiar significance, is without a parallel in history.

This is a book about time--about one's own journey through it and, more important, about enlarging the pleasure one takes in that journey. It's about memory of the past, hope and fear for the future, and how they color, for better and for worse, one's experience of the present. Ultimately, it's a book about freedom--freedom from despair of the clock, of the aging body, of the seeming waste of one's daily routine, the freedom that comes with acceptance and appreciation of the human dimensions of time and of the place of each passing moment on life's bounteous continuum. For Robert Grudin, living is an art, and cultivating a creative partnership with time is one of the keys to mastering it. In a series of wise, witty, and playful meditations, he suggests that happiness lies not in the effort to conquer time but rather in learning "to bend to its curve," in hearing its music and learning to dance to it. Grudin offers practical advice and mental exercises designed to help the reader use time more effectively, but this is no ordinary self-help book. It is instead a kind of wisdom literature, a guide to life, a feast for the mind and for the spirit.
