Summary

Stoicism, the classical philosophy as a way of life practiced by the Greeks and Romans, continues to resonate in the modern world. With more than 40 essays and reflections, this book is simultaneously a guide to practicing Stoicism in your own life and to all the different aspects of the modern Stoic revival. You will learn about Stoic practical wisdom, virtue, how to relate wisely to others, and the nature of Stoic joy. You will listen to life stories by those who practice Stoicism today, coping with illness and other adversities, and of how Stoicism can be helpful in many areas of modern life, from cultivating calm in the online world to contributing new solutions to the environmental crisis. And, just like the ancient Stoics did, key questions modern Stoics often ask are debated such as: Do you need God to be a Stoic? Is the Stoic an ascetic? 

Containing both practical wisdom and philosophical reflection, this book - the second in the Stoicism Today series - is for anyone interested in practicing the Stoic life in the modern world.
