Stoicism Today Series
I am very excited to announce the publication of Stoicism Today: Selected Writings Volume 3 and Volume 4. I am both a contributing author and the co-editor of these books, along with Greg Sadler, editor of the Stoicism Today blog from 2016-2022. Profits from sales of the books will go to supporting the ongoing work of the Modern Stoicism organization.
Volume 4: In recent years, the ancient philosophy of Stoicism has made a terrific impression on modern minds. This short, accessible volume represents some of the best writing available on modern Stoicism from the popular Stoicism Today blog. Books of essays have something for everyone, and this volume is no exception - from using Stoic philosophy to escape time or to change your ultimate view of reality, to facing pain and death, to dealing with difficult modern problems, this philosophy for hard times surely shines in many situations. Other contributions describing the ancient Stoic philosophers’ experiences of exile, facing hard truths, or laying down burdens to experience true joy, inspire us to virtue, invite us to become more courageous, and much more. No matter where your interests lie, this fourth, curated volume in the Stoicism Today series is certain to appeal.
Volume 3: In reading through these 37 excellent selections, you will encounter the variety, diversity, and richness of modern Stoicism. They range over topics such as the nature of Stoicism itself, spiritual practices, physical exercise, the emotions, psychotherapy, medicine, parenting and family, the workplace, the virtues, and the environment. Stoicism gets brought into comparison with other perspectives like Buddhism, as well as with other contemporary theorists and their approaches. See our 5-star reviews and learn more.
