A philosophy professor in my last semester taught me a great deal. She introduced me to a number of authors I've highlighted here: Pierre Hadot, Ivan Illich, Alasdair MacIntyre, and Heidegger, and she elucidated a number of authors I'd read prior to her class: Plato and Nietzsche. Above all, I learned from Dr. Babich that philosophy is not only dialectical hair-splitting but truly a way of life. I've tried to keep intellectual and spiritual faith with the precepts I learned in her class.

Dr. Babich here speaks to graduating philosophy students. The video captures some of the brilliance and clarity of her teaching.
