Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 6: Seneca and Stoicism Part I
In this first part of a two part mini-series on Seneca and Stoicism, Dr. Fleming explores the themes of Stoicism and how it fits with the disjunction between Roman moral philosophy and pagan behaviors. We also explore the thinking of Marcus Aurelius and how we can understand his existence in contrast with Caligula and Nero.
