Stoicism and Business

Lately I have been tuning into the podcasts by Tim Ferriss, of The Four Hour Work Week fame.  One of Tim’s podcasts on the Letter 13 by Seneca the Younger, a Stoic philosopher who lived 2,000 years ago, reminded me of one of how much I enjoyed studying ancient philosophy at Stanford undergrad.  Any discussion of modern philosophy can often come across as glib and irritating, but I was struck by the relevance of Seneca’s writings to my own experiences, those of my business associates, and clients.
