204: Reading The Stoics with Dr. Gregory Sadler

In this episode, guest host Greg Sadler discusses why reading Stoic texts, in particular classical primary sources, is an important practice for anyone who wants to really understand and progress in Stoicism. He draws in particular on three letters by Seneca, 33, 94, and 95, which discuss whether one can adequately understand Stoic philosophy by relying upon quotations or even precepts, and why it is important to keep going back to study the Stoic texts we have available.
