Is the universe deterministic? Do divine forces care about humanity? We find these answers through the ideas of ancient sages like Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, and others — and the views of movements such as the Pre-Socratics, Epicureans, Stoics, early Christians, Hellenistic Jews, and Gnostics. Our exploration will provide insights for modern times, including for such notions as the Simulation Theory.

Astral Guest – Dylan Burns, author of Did God Care? Providence, Dualism, and Will in Later Greek and Early Christian Philosophy, as well as research associate at the Freie Universität Berlin
