The Stoic Jew
The Intellectual Humility of Rabbi Moskowitz and Marcus Aurelius (Aurelius – Meditations 6:21)
Show Notes

Synopsis: We’re back! Since the last episode I posted was my eulogy of Rabbi Moskowitz, and since today (the day of the recording) is Rabbi Moskowitz’s shloshim, I decided to devote this episode to one of Rabbi Moskowitz’s many virtues – one which is discussed by Marcus Aurelius, and is shared by Judaism and Stoicism.

- Aurelius, Meditations 6:21
- Saadia Gaon, unsourced quotation (according to Rabbi Moskowitz’s unreliable memory)
- Emerson, Self-Reliance, Essays: First Series
