By Pierre Hadot

« los angeles vie philosophique ne consiste pas uniquement dans l. a. parole et l'écriture, mais dans l'action communautaire et sociale. C'était déjà l'opinion d'Épictète et de Marc Aurèle. C'est aussi dans cette standpoint de l'agir qu'il faut comprendre l. a. maxime goethéenne “N'oublie pas de vivre”, vehicle elle résume l'extraordinaire amour de los angeles vie que l'on peut observer chez Goethe. »

Grand lecteur de Goethe, Pierre Hadot examine ici remark le maître allemand se situe dans los angeles longue culture occidentale des « exercices spirituels » inspirés par los angeles philosophe old. Par cette pratique quotidienne, l'individu s'efforce de transformer sa manière de voir le monde afin de se transformer lui-même.
À l'instar des Anciens, Goethe croyait à los angeles nécessité de vivre dans le présent, dans l. a. « santé du second », de saisir le bonheur dans l'instant au lieu de se perdre dans l. a. nostalgie romantique du passé ou du futur. Le dépassement du « moi partiel et partial », los angeles focus sur l'instant présent, le « regard d'en haut », l. a. « point of view universelle » sont autant de thèmes, chers à Pierre Hadot, que Goethe a abordés.
