Summary

From Stoic ethics to emotions, from Stoic mayors and mindfulness to practical philosophy, parenting, psychotherapy and prisons, from Star Trek and Socrates to Stoic lawyers, literature and living in general, this audiobook brings together a wide-ranging collection of reflections on living the Stoic life today. You'll listen advice on coping with adversity, reflections on happiness, and the good life and powerful personal testimonies of putting Stoicism into practise. But you'll also rlisten about the links between Stoicism and psychotherapy, Stoicism and mindfulness meditation, and the unexpected places Stoicism can pop up in modern culture. This audiobook will be of interest to both academics and non-academics alike and is about the varied ways in which the 2,300 year old philosophy as a way of life remains relevant to the concerns and needs of the present day.

This book couldn’t be more timely

What a surprise to be deeply engaged in this content in so quickly. High praises for the narrator who conveys the authors words with a beautifully smooth expressiveness. This is a fascinating topic and I look forward to digging deeper into Stoicism Today!
