G-Squad author's post (Section 13- Group 1)

     On Wednesday, our group discussed whether or not we thought religion was necessary for a corrupt society. We also discussed whether or not we need religion to have a good society. Many questions were proposed and discussed also. Where would we draw the lines without religion? Does religion govern society? Does religion in the west govern society the way it does in other places? and finally what makes a society 'good' or 'corrupt'?


  1. What name comes from the Stoa, which was a painted porch in Athens where these philosophers used to meet?

    According to Seneca, how do YOU think that we should spend our time?

    DQ: Can one truly waste a life?

  3. FQ: What part of stoicism did Seneca and Cicero disagree on?

    This comic kind of makes stoicism sound pretty inspirational.
    This is a link on the good and bad parts of stoicism. It also highlights a book that introduces modern day stoicism pretty well.

  4. FQ: T/F Seneca was a slave.
    DQ: Do we need religion to tell right from wrong?
