Audio series: Seneca’s On Providence

Here is the latest complete audio commentary series from my Stoic Meditations, dedicated to Seneca’s On Providence. The work, in the form of a dialogue, was probably composed around 64 CE (Seneca died the following year). The subject matter is the Stoic notion of Providence and what later became known as the problem of evil.

You can judge of a pilot in a storm, of a soldier in a battle. How can I know with how great a spirit you could endure poverty, if you overflow with riches? (IV)

My audio commentary runs for 7 episodes.
