EPISTLE XXXVI. ON THE VALUE OF RETIREMENT

In this epistle, Seneca shares some profound ideas regarding human desire, the role of fate and fortune in our lives, and moving towards an inner solitude away from the bustle of daily life.

HOSTED BY

SIMON DREW

It’s been more than five years from my first encounter with Lucius Annaeus Seneca, and yet I continue to be deeply moved, surprised, and transformed by his teachings. 

Seneca is, for me, a shining beacon of wisdom in a world so often permeated with folly, and that’s why I love exploring his teachings with others—his is wisdom that simply cannot be kept to oneself.
