Two thoughts on this.
First, I’ve discovered I have an antipathy to Seneca that I was previously unaware of. I knew that I did not choose to re-read him in the way that I re-read MA and Epictetus, but I did not anticipate that I’d respond to being asked to meditate on a passage from Seneca with ad hominem abuse. I have no idea what that is about; I must have suppressed it, and I’d probably benefit from re-reading Seneca and finding out.
Second, I very much liked being given directed readings. At the Conference, Professor Gill talked about producing a book, and I’d like to order a copy now please.
