Plagues, Nemesis and timeless Morals
Consequences of Vices and Virtues as mechanics, not "Judgement"
In this episode we'll look at a couple of highlights from Episode 5 in Dr. Jordan Peterson's Exodus Series, and see how the idea of morals as consequences of virtues and vices has been expressed in both Ancient Greek and Late Medieval Times.
We’ll also read a few excerpts from Dante’s letter to his patron Can Grande della Scala, where Dante explicitly expresses the purpose of his book and the moral wisdom we find within it.
