In today’s episode of The Veterinary Business Success Show, host Brendan Howard interviews professor of philosophy and author of seven books (including A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy) William Irvine.
William began his education at the University of Michigan where he gained his BA in Mathematics and Philosophy, before going on to gain a MA and Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of California. During and after graduate school, William was drawn to ‘pure philosophy’. However, after writing his doctoral dissertation on ‘Russell’s Construction of Space from Perspectives’, William’s interests and research have been within the topics that ‘lie on the border between philosophy and something else’.
Alongside his research and writing about philosophy, William has built an academic career as a professor of philosophy at Wright State University.
In this episode, William discusses Stoicism, an ancient philosophy he has adopted into his own life, and how this can help veterinary professionals.
