Timo Schmitz: “The εὐδαιμονία in the Roman Empire around the Birth of Christ in the Stoic School as seen through Seneca” (2017) [PDF]

Seneca lived in the first century AD, and thus around the time of Jesus Christ. As a Stoic, he clearly rejected the passions and built up a concept of radical reason. This paper analyses the main ideas on Seneca’s εὐδαιμονία in short.

Timo Schmitz: “εὐδαιμονία as τέλος of Ancient Greek philosophy” (2017) [PDF]

From Plato to Plotin, the main question of philosophy was the question on how to live a successful life. Not just the question of who created us was of major importance, but also the question where life will lead us. What will happen after life? How can we reflect the achievings of our life? Though every branch of Ancient Greek philosophy had its own methodology, the τέλος was the same: εὐδαιμονία!

Homeland
By Timo Schmitz

Chechnya, my beautiful land,
Strong people, strong land,
You are the ruler of the Caucasus,
My heart is rejoicing!
We in Europe are missing you,
Chechnya, you were ours,
Chechens are everywhere in the world,
The sun always shines brightly,
Chechnya, where are you my love?
