Evil Women, Outdated History, Beautiful Islands and the Quest for Character
Dear Classical Wisdom Reader,
Yesterday, in the cold and wet pampas, it was clear spring had not quite sprung….and yet today, with the sun shining and the red breasted Robin singing, it appears that Demeter has finally been reunited with her dear pomegranate-loving daughter Persephone.
It’s quite appropriate really, as here in Argentina it’s Día de la Madre, or Mother’s Day. To celebrate this made up (yet still greatly appreciated) holiday, we’re off to lunch and a stroll in one of my favorite museums in the city, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. The Rodin on the first floor is simply divine!
As such, I’ll leave you dear reader, with this week’s articles to enjoy - from Ancient Rome’s infamous ladies and a walk through Lipari’s storied past to our mailbag question this week, asking: what we should do with ‘outdated’ history?
For members, we have an important Classical Wisdom Litterae edition dedicated to the philosophical branch of Ethics, as well as a fascinating interview with Philosophy professor, Stoic and author, Massimo Pigliucci regarding the quest for character and virtue.
