Anthony Long on Marcus Aurelius

For years the name of AA Long was a reliable though unseen friend guiding me in much of my classics reading. One always had the sense of a profoundly engaged and reliable commentator especially regarding Hellenistic and Stoic literature which has been an abiding interest. It was a lovely surprise to come a cross this video of him: now I know what he looks and sounds like but most impressively, the amazing way he “performs,” echoing the tone in his writing, having such a broad and deep grasp of the material and being able to communicate difficult ideas. He is very much a scholar’s scholar, old school. I’m sure that there are other gems to be found on this resource which I’d not come across before: Philosophical Installations.
