Classics

I’m interested in the study classical philosophy and history, especially stoic philosophy and its political ramifications.  From time to time, I post selections from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius here with my own annotations. You can see those and other posts on stoicism here.

Stoicism

I’ve been profoundly effected by the Meditations and have read it in a number of editions. My favorite being the Hays translation. Also worth checking out are the Hammond and the Haines (available in the Loeb edition with facing Greek pages).
