In this conversation, we review Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman’s Lives of the Stoics, focusing on their accounts of the big three Roman Stoics: Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. This is a great episode for getting a sense of the lives of key figures we talk about.
(08:39) Seneca the Striver
(24:00) Epictetus the Free Man
(37:16) Marcus Aurelius the Philosopher King
