    1. Second time through this. Still had lots to learn. An excellent view of Stoic ideas of virtue, with some interesting speculation toward the end. BTW, don't let the term 'religious' throw you. It is religion in the 21st century sense (i.e. mystical) but rather the systematic approach towards personal commitment and transformation in the light of universal truths. Worthy of several re-reads.
