Bring Ancient Wisdom to your Modern Mind
War, plague, inflation... the rise and fall of nations, the collapse of empires. There is nothing that is happening today that history hasn’t already borne witness to.
The truth of the matter is that we humans haven’t really changed that much. What Cicero has to say about grief is as relevant today as it was in the first century BC. The wise words of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius still ring true and can help us with anxiety, anger and gratitude...while Aristotle illuminates us today on the ideas of friendship, love... and well, just about everything else.
History doesn’t repeat itself, as the old saying goes, but it does rhyme.
Those who are clued into this know it’s very worthwhile learning from the past.
The Classics are a toolbox, a colossal resource that can provide a humbling perspective on our society and ourselves. It is priceless wisdom on how to be a better person, a family member, a citizen. It supplies us with infinite relevant historical examples that can shed essential light on current events and help us prepare for the future.
The tragedy is that few realise that this vast untapped wealth of knowledge is at our fingertips, just waiting to be read, discussed, appreciated... and applied.
This is our mission here at Classical Wisdom, to bring this ancient wisdom to modern minds.
And if you are one of those who still believe in the value of history, philosophy, mythology, literature and learning - then I’m very glad you are here.
