Determinism and the Stoics

Leave a comment

I was choosing something to listen to whilst running on the treadmill at my local gym, and I chanced across a podcast on Stoicism on my laptop that I’d not listened to. Rather pleasingly, the first section of the podcast covered the topic of determinism that I addressed in my previous post. Not only did that section help clarify some of the compatibilist accounts for me, but the rest of the podcast was pretty interesting too – so I recommend you click the link and have a good listen to King’s College’s podcast on Stoic Ethics from its series on the history of philosophy: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/ikings/index.php?id=644

Meanwhile – the History of Philosophy podcast series gets added to my list of favourite links.
