Musonius Rufus Workshop - 12/04/2019, London (England)


The Roman Stoics have received renewed attention in recent years, both from scholars and from the wider public looking for guidance in everyday life. Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius are now being worked on and read in ways that would have few would have expected a couple of decades ago. Lesser known Stoics such as Hierocles and Cornutus have also benefited from new studies and translations. The poor relation, though, is Musonius Rufus, who has not yet experienced a similar resurgence in fortune.
