Discuss Seneca's Letters

We will continue our reading of ancient texts by reading the works of Seneca, philosopher and playwright. Many modern Stoics claim his writings to be among their favorites.

To emphasize the modern application of Stoicism in one's life, please bring something to discuss that you have seen in you life that is an example of a stoic approach to life or a complex issue that we may explore with Stoic philosophy. Examples: an article you read, a current event, a situation from a book, movie or TV, a personal experience...

    Thanks to all who attended.... so many new faces! We will work with Seneca's writings next time... I promise. Because we changed locations, have switched to a new book, and had so many newcomers, I felt I needed to spend time discussing the purpose of the group, introducing ourselves, and get a feel for the dynamic of he new group... all to make better discussions in the future... Because many had not read the Seneca writings, I thought an intro to Stoicism and answering general questions was the best way to handle this first meeting at Dobra Tea
