ABOUT JUDITH STOVE

JUDITH STOVE

AUTHOR | RESEARCHER | PHILOSOPHER

A mother of two adult sons, I have published two books on the life and times of Jane Austen, and many articles on history and literature. My husband and I are lucky enough to live within a beautiful garden created by my father, philosopher David Stove (1927-1994), outside Sydney, Australia, close to the Blue Mountains National Park. Every day is an opportunity to learn more about the intricacy of the cosmos, from both ‘the book of Nature,’ and the works surviving from the past.

Maybe we will see historians being more comfortable with love and virtue. Marcus [Aurelius] drew our attention to the role of love in Nature (X.21.1). Here’s hoping. Because that, after all, is why we are gathered here: to grow in virtue ourselves through reading, talking, thinking and writing about – as Marcus puts it, getting to know - the brave, wise and just women and men of the past.
