QUINTUS CURTIUS | The Quest for Virtue
Manage episode 354267750 series 2822438
~ My 100th Episode! ~
My guest this week is George Thomas, but you may know him better by his pen name, Quintus Curtius.
He's an attorney, MIT graduate, former marine officer, author, and the translator of the timeless work of philosophy, Cicero's "On Duties."
Cicero wrote "On Duties" to his son, passing along fatherly wisdom to aid the boy in his education.
And the gift that Quintus Curtius has given all of us, as men and women, is to reach back across more than 2000 years, just before the Christian era, to find a snapshot of a moment between father and son that I think that many of us today, are longing for.
In our conversation, George and I discussed:
- His Own Background and Life Path
- The Origins and Structure of "On Duties"
- Philosophy and Time Travel
- The Value of Anger
- Men's Obligation to Pursue Virtue
- Religion vs. Philosophy
- An Appreciation of Fine Firearms
