  1. Lovely photo Jannik! =) Thank you for the post - a good translation is crucial for providing context around philosophical studies.

    I felt a lot of The Meditation, as well as a lot of Seneca's writings, seemed to urge us to study (almost) feverishly while life was at peace, thereby accumulating as much knowledge as possible, because you never know what fortune has in waiting - tomorrow one could be at war and needs to apply all one knows to the circumstances. After all, what circumstances require is in fact what we want, and it's better that we come prepared. =)
