CHANCE (DE FORTUNA)
In default of any information regarding Plutarch's short essay on Chance, we
can only guess that it may have been delivered as a lecture, although
Hartman denies such a possibility. The arguing of such subjects has always
had a certain attraction for mankind until comparatively recent times, but
the development of a more exact knowledge regarding psychology has in later
years checked such discussions. Yet a knowledge of psychology will not
detract from the interest and enjoyment of anyone who will read this essay.
