In today’s Heroic Chat, we are joined by William B. Irvine.

 

William B. Irvine is professor of philosophy at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Irvine writes books on philosophy for an average audience. He says, “I am not interested, as most of my philosophical colleagues are, in writing primarily for other philosophers.

He is also the author of The Stoic Challenge and A Guide to the Good Life.
