Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times - Part Three


Course description

Seneca’s Letters to Lucilius offer advice to his friend Lucilius, and to us modern readers, on how to apply philosophical wisdom to the problems of life. In this eight session seminar, students will explore Letters 20-30, which finishes the sequence with an unforgettable account of the serene Epicurean death of Seneca’s friend Aufidius Bassus. As well as death and dying, we also discuss topics such as fame, ambition, retirement, restlessness, anxiety, inauthenticity, old age and Epicurean and Stoic philosophy.

It is not necessary to have attended parts one and two to participate in this seminar.
