Finish Our Study of Stoicism with the Final Chapters of the Meditations

  • Nov 30, 2012 · 7:00 PM

We will be concluding our study of Stoicism with a discussion of the final chapters (X, XI, and XII) of Marcus Aurelius' Meditations.  We will have some final thoughts on Stoicism and then select a subject for our next philosophical inquiry.  Suggestions include the Bhagavad Gita and the philosophy of Rene Descartes.

    Fer sure. It was hard to extricate oneself.

    This was truly a probing discussion, lasting some three and a half hours. We just couldn't tear ourselves away.

    Let's add Francis Bacon to the candidates for the next subject. He wrote advocating science, advocated a fresh start over Aristotle, wanted to replace the deductive method with the inductive method, and lived at a crossroad between Renaissance and so-called Modern Philosophy. I see our present age as also at a crossroad, and it interests me to study how Bacon attempted to reform the philosophy of his era.
