Hike & Think

  • Stoicism
  • Hike with lecture elements & conversation
  • In dialogue, Social Activity

The Philosophy Walks of the DAI Library combine significant philosophical topics with an extended walk in nature. They always address how the topic fits into our natural environment as well as our living world.

Stoicism, founded by the philosopher Zeno, was once one of the most influential philosophical movements of antiquity. According to him, man can only achieve a fulfilled life if he recognizes his integration into a cosmic order that transcends him. Through moderate control of his affects, he should find a peace of mind that survives all possible strokes of fate, and in connection with this, an attentiveness for the respective moment.

Dr. Max von Sponeck is a lecturer at the Philosophy Seminar and the PH and a lecturer in ethics at the SRH. His scientific specialty is the contemporary philosophy of mind.

Carsten Dolbert is a geoscientist by training. He works as a project coordinator, trained as a systemic consultant and therapist, and has been active for many years as a volunteer in international disaster relief.
