Serendipity: a Philosophical Conversation

Serendipity is defined in the 2001 film as a "fortunate accident". The film then progresses to give different philosophical inferences and destiny and fate are constantly mentioned and reflected upon. Which philosophers/theologians have mentioned destiny and fate, specifically, and how can that be related to this film? Suggestions of philosophers and theologians could be Stoic Philosophy, Epicurus, Aquinas, Anselm, Luther and the doctrine of predestination, etc. Does the idea of destiny and fate impede or fulfill our lives, especially with respect to love?

  • Will this be about the film or the philosophical term? The first option sounds interesting. The second option sounds a little out of the scope of The Artifice. – T. Palomino 12 months ago
