Topic: Heraclitus, the pre-Stoic philosopher who inspired Marcus Aurelius
Heraclitus was one of the most interesting, and puzzling, of the pre-Socratic philosophers. He is famous, among other things, for saying that we never step into the same river twice. He was a major influence on the Stoics, and particularly Marcus Aurelius. Let's explore Heraclitus' notion of the Logos, as well as his "process metaphysics" and the implications they have for modern ethics.
