Richard Sorabji to Become Honorary Fellow of the DLCC

We are delighted to announce that Sir Richard Sorabji, CBE FBA, Honorary Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, is to join the Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion as an Honorary Fellow. Professor Sorabji, who is a recognised authority on the work of Aristotle and his tradition and on the philosophy of Stoicism, has held academic positions at various institutions including, among others, Cornell University, King’s College London and Wolfson College, Oxford. He is the editor of over 100 volumes of translation and author of fourteen books in the history of philosophy and of two biographies. In his most recent work, Gandhi and the Stoics: Modern Experiments on Ancient Values, Professor Sorabji defends the claim that Mahatma Gandhi was a philosopher of great significance, and that his thought shows a profound affinity with that of the ancient Greek Stoics. A Fellow of both the British Academy and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Professor Sorabji was awarded a CBE in 1999 for services to the scholarship of Ancient Philosophy and received a knighthood for services to philosophical scholarship in the Queen’s Birthday Honours last year.
