The best and the greatest number of authors have asserted that philosophy consists of three part: the moral, the natural, and the rational. The first puts the soul in order. The second thoroughly examines the natural order of things. The third inquires into the proper meaning of words, and their arrangements and proofs which keep falsehoods from creeping in to displace truth.”
Seneca, Moral Letters, 89.9
Even though there are three moving parts to the philosophy-engine, it has but one goal, one purpose…
… to help the adherent live the good life, rooted in reality, ruled by the rational mind.
Life is about living with virtue, and finding every empty space that calls out to be filled with kindness.
Three parts… one aim.
