I have a talk coming up in March that quite frankly is scaring me to death. I have to give a series of forty minute talks to some ….. teenagers! (Dan Dan Daaa!)
So yes I am brushing up on my Classical knowledge. As a young and foolish man I really hated the Classics in general and Philosophy in particular but now at the age of 30 (version 9) I have come to love them. My other interests include CS Lewis. I have read everything that Lewis wrote and now with my classical knowledge increasing I can understand him a deeper level. I never realised how much stoicism was in Mere Christianity or the Screwtape Letters!
I have just finished reading A Classical Education which proved to be a good read, full of interesting facts and enlightening.
