Podcast: John Sellars on 'Freedom and Indifference in Marcus Aurelius'

You can listen here to an audio recording of a lecture John Sellars gave on Marcus Aurelius at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

In his talk, John attempts ‘…to rescue Marcus Aurelius from the charge of rationalization made against the late Stoics by Isaiah Berlin, Bernard Williams, David Zimmerman, and others. Marcus’s retreat into his inner citadel is not a defensive response to unwelcome external circumstances but rather a reflection of his commitment to the central claims of Stoic value theory.’
