Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 7: Seneca and Stoicism Part II

In this second part of a two part mini-series on Seneca and Stoicism, Dr. Fleming takes a closer look at five letters from the first volume of Moral Letters to Lucillius.

Feel free to reference the following letters during our discussion today:

On Saving Time

On the Philosopher’s Mean

On Quibbling as Unworthy of the Philosopher

On the Reasons from Withdrawing from the World

On Philosophy and Friendship

We examine threads that very much mirror a development in moral thinking as “revolutionary” as the New Testament’s completion of the admonitions and philosophy of the Old Testament.
