New Philosopher #19, February – April 2018
210 x 278mm, 132 pages, Australia (UK edition)
Appropriately, in the About section of the New Philosopher website, the editors turn to the stoic wisdom of Seneca by way of explanation:
Seneca, speaking on the shortness of life says: “It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realise that it has passed away before we knew it was passing.
Life is long if you know how to use it.”
This time around the perennially popular philosophy magazine asks ‘What is the meaning of life?’’ in an issue themed Life.
