One might think philosophy is interesting, even fun to learn, but too highfalutin to make much of a difference in one’s everyday life. How could life change if philosophy were to be taken seriously?

January 23: Epictetus on What’s in our Control
January 28: Shantideva & Seneca on Controlling Ourselves
