Philip Argenio is a PhD candidate in Politics and International Relations at the University of Adelaide. His PhD thesis, "Classical Stoicism and Scottish Political Economy: The Ancient Origins of Modern Political and Economic Thought", explores the uptake of Stoic ideas in eighteenth-century Scotland, particularly by Adam Smith, his mentors, contemporaries, and successors. Philip is particularly interested in how ancient philosophers like Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius influenced modern controversies about self-interest, natural sociability, spontaneous order, and theories of property and value, which were foundational in the development of political economy as a social science.
