Issac Newton was a student at Cambridge when the Great Plague of London hit. His university canceled classes and just like many of us today, he was forced to stay at home. Fortunately for us all, he used that time wisely. It was during his self-quarantine that he developed the foundations for calculus, optics and gravity.
So, too can we make good use of this time, if we are willing and able, to learn, to read, to philosophize.. . And we here at Classical Wisdom want to contribute in any way possible, to do our part to help.
Whether it’s a way to stay sane in insane times or just continue the pursuit of knowledge, we are offering our Essential Greeks Course completely Free to everyone staying in. From the comfort and safety of your own home, you can sign up and begin classes this Sunday – including 40 videos covering the most important Greeks from Homer to Aristotle, original texts, e-books, biographies and quizzes.
The Essential Greeks course will begin Sunday March 22nd, but you will have full access to the materials as soon as you sign up.
So, sign yourself up or any friend or family member you think would enjoy the journey or would like a welcome and educational distraction.
After all, It is at times of crisis when we need the classics the most, for the perspective and wisdom they can provide… Stay safe and wash your hands.
