Ethics begins at home, a personal update

Ethics is a very personal matter

According to the Stoics, a eudaimonic life — that is, a life worth living — is one in which we use reason in the service of the human cosmopolis. Which is why a bit more than five years ago, coming out of a more or less typical midlife crisis, I embraced Stoicism as my chosen philosophy of life. As Seneca puts it:

“Virtue is nothing else than right reason.” (Letters to Lucilius, LXVI.32)
