Cicero On The Paradox Of The Rich Man



Amazon Music •  Apple Podcasts •  SpotifyOvercastWondery


In today’s audiobook reading, Ryan presents the sixth and final reading of Cicero’s Stoic Paradoxes. Cicero was considered Rome’s greatest politician, and he has survived as one of history’s most enduring chroniclers of Stoic philosophy and of the Stoics themselves. As Ryan explains in Lives of the Stoics, these paradoxes are designed to question commonly held beliefs in order to promote reflection and discussion. With his last paradox, Cicero examines the idea that “only the wise man is rich.”
