Many traditions in philosophy have aimed at helping individuals think more deeply and rigorously about the good life. Notre Dame and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are partnering with universities across the world to imagine new and higher impact ways to teach these traditions. The Mellon Philosophy as a Way of Life Network is a team of over one hundred philosophy faculty from diverse institutions who research aspects of philosophy as a way of life, share curricula, train one another on key teaching strategies, and support each other as we find new ways to serve our students and the humanities more broadly.  We meet up annually for a summer workshop and share our resources on this site. We welcome you to learn more about the program, search our growing database of teaching materials, and reach out if we can help your department.
