The Consolations of Boethius

If you get the chance, listen to the edition of In Our Time that went out on New Years' Day - it was a discussion on Boethius' Consolations of Philosophy, with Roger Scruton and AC Grayling among the guests, but it broadened out into a general discussion of what consolation philosophy can bring us, with plenty of thought about the Stoics and their importance to western culture. BBC broadcasting at its finest.
