SR12: The Philosopher's Perspective on Possessions

Chance. Fortune. Good Luck. Whatever you want to call it, our fate is and always has been linked with these concepts. Nowadays our beliefs on who generates this fortune depend on our religious and spiritual views but during Seneca's time they were personified by the goddess Fortuna. In this week's Seneca Stoic reading co-host Wren covers Letter 8, which discuss chance, fortune, and how we properly value our possessions. Tune in for insights on how to properly use your time in isolation, how to treat the gifts of good luck, and what possessions and philosophy mean to the wise philosopher.
