About Old Answers

Old Answers queries some of history's greatest minds about life's most pressing questions. I draw heavily, but not exclusively, on philosophers of the Hellenistic period and of later Imperial Rome and the early centuries of the Christian era. These thinkers were dedicated to philosophy in its most useful aspect, as the pursuit of practical wisdom—rational know-how for day-to-day living and human flourishing.
