‘Sto-i-cism’: “an ancient Greek school of philosophy founded at Athens by Zeno of Citium. The school taught that virtue, the highest good, is based on knowledge; the wise live in harmony with the divine Reason (also identified with Fate and Providence) that governs nature, and are indifferent to the vicissitudes of fortune and to pleasure and pain.“
About this Episode
In this episode I discuss stoicism with Author and Podcast Host Anderson Silver. Anderson and I discuss some of the foundational concepts of Stoic philosophy. We talk about the information within his three books Your User’s Manual, Your Duality Within and Your Dichotomy of Control. The concepts in his books can help the reader apply Stoic philosophies and principles into their daily lives.
Virtue. Harmony. Reason. These are philosophies that 2020 America should consider as part of our after action report for the past year. Many have been without harmony as politics, race and other social factors have collided. Reason seems to have been brushed aside in place of fear in the face of the COVID.
More from Anderson Silver
Anderson also hosts a podcast called ‘Stoicism for a Better Life’, puts weekly articles and more. Anderson and I talk for more than an hour. Once you start listening I think you’ll find it’s time well spent. I appreciated learning more from him and more about how we can be better prepared to face life as we consider philosophies developed a few thousand years ago that are still very applicable today.
