How to cultivate the good life according to Roman philosophy. Today, we treasure the Romans for their advances in art, culture, politics, and philosophy. That’s why so many of their texts survived and why we employ elements of their political practices in our modern form of government. But Letters From a Stoic invites us to remember the Romans as more than dusty relics and engage with ancient wisdom that still has the power to pack a punch in the present. By exploring the writings of the influential Roman philosopher Seneca, Letters From a Stoic offers us the opportunity to connect with Seneca’s insights on some of the fundamental questions of human existence: what “the good life” is and how to find it, how to break free of toxic habits, and how to find peace.

We have also provided a number of exercises that you can use to help make Stoicism a part of your daily life. Topics covered include: The early history of Stoicism, from its founding as a school of thought by Zeno in 300 BC to its decline due to the growing popularity of Christianity, and its resurgence in modern times. Profiles of three masters who were important in the development of the Stoic philosophy: Epictetus, the former slave who became one of the most influential Stoic philosophers; Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor who helped promote its popularity; and the controversial Seneca, who sought to live the Stoic life in spite of his lavish lifestyle. Why Stoicism became popular in recent years and its appeal not only to people from all walks of life as well as those with differing belief systems. Practical exercises that you can use to practice Stoic mindfulness in your daily life, ranging from morning and evening reflections to keeping a mindfulness journal. Inspiring stories of people who have used Stoicism in order to overcome difficult situations in their daily lives, including the amazing story of Sam Sullivan, who used Stoic principles to not only recover from a crippling injury that left him paralyzed but also to successfully run for mayor of Vancouver.

"Stoicism needs a new work of this kind. Sellars not only takes good account of the last thirty years of research, he also has much of his own to contribute. I particularly applaud his focus on Epictetus and on Stoicism as an art of life. "--A.A. Long, author of Stoic Studies

This volume is a revised translation of the complete text of Book Six about Diogenes of Sinope and the Cynics, taken from The Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers written around AD 230 by the Graeco-Roman author Diogenes Laertius. The Life of Diogenes is accompanied by a detailed outline of Cynic philosophy, explaining Cynic doctrine and its significance for today's audience. Alongside the Life of Diogenes are accounts of other Cynics, including Antisthenes, Crates and Hipparchia. The works of the early Cynics have all been lost, and this text by Diogenes Laertius thankfully preserves an important range of quotations and references. Despite the Cynic's extreme stance, this idealistic philosophy still has a valid part to play in the face of the increasing materialism of our modern society, challenging us to re-evaluate our priorities. The nineteenth-century translation of C. D. Yonge has been substantially revised, and is supported by a new Introduction, Glossary of Names, Notes and Index.

Originally published by Scholars Press Now Available from Duke University Press One of the most urgent and persistent of human problems was first posed by Aristotle: What is the best and most worthwhile life that a human being can live? Surveying some fourteen thinkers—ancient and modern, Eastern and Western—this work describes the various pathways that have been taken toward answering Aristotle’s question. Each pathway is subjected to four questions: 1) how does it define the “problem” of life? 2) what is the cause of the problem? 3) what is the solution to that problem? and 4) what is the way or means of achieving that solution? The comparison of alternative answers to Aristotle’s question provides students of philosophy, religion, and the humanities with a provocative and engaging introduction to the major concepts, vocabulary, problems, and solutions endemic to philosophical thinking. Each chapter is accompanied by a series of questions which encourage the reader to examine critcally not only the philosophy under discussion but his or her own views about what constitutes the worthwhile life. Exemplary in the clarity of its purpose and expression, The Ways of Philosophy is both an accessible introduction to the discipline and a reminder that philosophy attempts to provide practical solutions to genuine human problems.
