This is the first introduction to Stoic philosophy for 30 years. Aimed at readers new to Stoicism and to ancient philosophy, it outlines the central philosophical ideas of Stoicism and introduces the reader to the different ancient authors and sources that they will encounter when exploring Stoicism. The range of sources that are drawn upon in the reconstruction of Stoic philosophy can be bewildering for the beginner. Sellars guides the reader through the surviving works of the late Stoic authors, Seneca and Epictetus, and the fragments relating to the early Stoics found in authors such as Plutarch and Stobaeus. The opening chapter offers an introduction to the ancient Stoics, their works, and other ancient authors who report material about ancient Stoic philosophy. The second chapter considers how the Stoics themselves conceived philosophy and how they structured their own philosophical system. Chapters 3-5 offer accounts of Stoic philosophical doctrines arranged according to the Stoic division of philosophical discourse into three parts: logic, physics, and ethics. The final chapter considers the later impact of Stoicism on Western philosophy. At the end of the volume there is a detailed guide to further reading.

Stoicism is now widely recognised as one of the most important philosophical schools of ancient Greece and Rome. But how did it influence Western thought after Greek and Roman antiquity? The question is a difficult one to answer because the most important Stoic texts have been lost since the end of the classical period, though not before early Christian thinkers had borrowed their ideas and applied them to discussions ranging from dialectic to moral theology. Later philosophers became familiar with Stoic teachings only indirectly, often without knowing that an idea came from the Stoics. The contributors recruited for this volume, first published in 2004, include some of the leading international scholars of Stoicism as well as experts in later periods of philosophy. They trace the impact of Stoicism and Stoic ideas from late antiquity through the medieval and modern periods.

What would stoic ethics be like today if stoicism had survived as a systematic approach to ethical theory, if it had coped successfully with the challenges of modern philosophy and experimental science? A New Stoicism proposes an answer to that question, offered from within the stoic tradition but without the metaphysical and psychological assumptions that modern philosophy and science have abandoned. Lawrence Becker argues that a secular version of the stoic ethical project, based on contemporary cosmology and developmental psychology, provides the basis for a sophisticated form of ethical naturalism, in which virtually all the hard doctrines of the ancient Stoics can be clearly restated and defended. Becker argues, in keeping with the ancients, that virtue is one thing, not many; that it, and not happiness, is the proper end of all activity; that it alone is good, all other things being merely rank-ordered relative to each other for the sake of the good; and that virtue is sufficient for happiness. Moreover, he rejects the popular caricature of the stoic as a grave figure, emotionally detached and capable mainly of endurance, resignation, and coping with pain. To the contrary, he holds that while stoic sages are able to endure the extremes of human suffering, they do not have to sacrifice joy to have that ability, and he seeks to turn our attention from the familiar, therapeutic part of stoic moral training to a reconsideration of its theoretical foundations.

This book is about the philosophy of Stoicism and how it can help people achieve greater personal happiness. There are many ways of living and thinking that lead to unhappiness. These ways are paradigms for unhappiness that can cause people to pursue false gods. Some struggle trying to make reality adjust to them rather than adjusting themselves to reality; some invest their happiness in capricious passion that is never fully satisfied; others spend their lives desiring that which they don't need; and many live their lives in ignorance, unaware of why they do what they do, and fearing that which they do not understand. The ancient philosophy of Stoicism is a way to penetrate these paradigmatic sources of unhappiness. Stoicism was the ancient philosophy of Cicero (106 BC-43 BC), Seneca (4 BC-65 AD), Epictetus (c. AD 50-138), and Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD). It is a philosophy whose principle objective is to bring human happiness, or tranquility of the mind. It is a philosophy that, according to Seneca, helps those facing death, the poor, those whose lives have been ruined, and those who are suffering. Its fundamental principles are that the world is as we make it and that we have the ability to make our worlds better through our own will-power. The Stoics believed that nature has given us the tools to achieve happiness, and all we have to do is use them.

This book features an extensive amount of information on stoicism, including the origins of stoicism, virtue in stoicism, stoicism and psychology, stoicism and the emotions, spiritual learning in stoicism, friendships and love in stoicism, dealing with negative emotions in stoicism, spiritual exercises to become a better stoic, and stoicism's relationships to Christianity. Each of these topics includes lots of intricacies that can only be fully understood with intensive practice and study, so do take care to let these messages of the ancients seep into your mind, allowing you to receive as much as possible from these timeless teachings. Stoic philosophy is a Hellenistic virtue ethic that was founded by Zeno of Citium in Athens around the year 300 BC. The main schools of thought at this time and place consisted of the Platonic Academics, the Stoics, the Epicureans, and the Peripatetics, all ranked here in order of their popularity among the Athenian public. For the most part, all of these schools were influenced by and benefited from one another, though it was not uncommon that they would clash from time to time. Above all, the Stoics valued virtue and the following of logos or the divine reason.These are the two main tenets of this philosophical system. In addition, they also advised against trying to influence external realities that we cannot control, as well as taking the rash criticisms of others' to heart. With all of these basics in mind, it is no wonder why stoicism has a lot to offer modern people. This philosophy of self-sufficiency is especially useful for people today who are often more considerate of their image in the eyes of others than they are their own self-image. One transcendental philosopher (Ralph Waldo Emerson) would later go on to extol the value in remaining an individual within a crowd, as opposed to retreating from society or to conforming to the will of others. This viewpoint was initiated by the early Stoics, who taught us that it is only through our individual practice of virtue that we can find happiness. In this age of social media and petty tyranny, we have more than ever to learn from these early thinkers, so those of us who do listen to their lessons are put at a great advantage in doing so. This philosophical tradition is also notable in its similarities to Christianity. With this being said, it becomes a great system for Christians to learn and latch onto with ease, despite the fact that this system differs from the religion in a few ways.

Stoicism, one of the oldest, Western philosophical schools, has enchanted scholars and the general public alike for over two thousand years. Where some accounts of human nature and the particularly human good fall short by the reduction of human being to physical or psychical phenomena, Stoicism's power lies in engaging with the whole range of human experience, addressing rationality, emotion, piety, will, and both inner and outer impressions, each on their own terms, in language that treats each as significant in its own right. Stoicism is an active philosophy. That means that it is not enough to know its doctrines, one must also live them, develop habits that expand on and complete their ideas in practice. Practice, therefore, is also the focus of this book. The development of the reader's inner and outer life, that they may follow their own path and discover what it means to "live life in accordance with nature." This book is a general introduction to Stoicism that pulls no punches when faced with the more complex aspects of Stoic doctrine. Topics addressed include: The history of the ancient Stoics. The nature of good and evil, virtue and vice, and positive and negative externals. The difference between those things in our control and those things not in our control. Stoic Logic and practical reasoning. Stoicism's role in the development of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Stoic exercises and daily practice. Theology's role in Stoicism and Stoic cosmology.

This book is a manifesto of reformed Stoicism. It proposes a system of life which is bullet-proof, universal, viable and effective in every cosmic setting. It holds in every possible universe, under any government and within any economic system. We can be reformed Stoics no matter what we believe in. Reformed Stoicism is about enjoying and exercising our agency. In other words, it’s about the flow of making autonomous and right decisions, and about celebrating our ability to make them. With no reliance on nature, with the recalibration of metaphysical positions, with skepticism towards grand discourses and universal answers, with an emphasis on the usefulness instead of truthfulness of narratives, with no reference to the vanity argument, with criticism of both conservative and ascetic misinterpretations of Stoicism, with an overall softer and more empathic approach, we can no longer be defined by the generic term “Stoicism”. Our time, in short, calls for a fresh interpretation of Stoicism. It is time for a new generation of Stoics. Thus: reformed Stoicism.

Have you ever heard the expression that someone was very "Stoic?" Perhaps the individual had shown great courage in adversity, or managed to stay calm in a stressful situation. This is usually what we think of when we hear the term "Stoic." But the practice of Stoicism is much more than simply being cool under pressure. Stoicism is a means of unmasking all of the falsehoods in life to be able to see them for what they truly are. Stoics at their core are seekers of truth and reason. Stoics were fully aware that most of the fear, anxiety and confusion we have in this life is due to being fixated on the things we cannot control. We regret the past and worry about tomorrow when the only thing within our power is what we can do today. Stoicism teaches us to keep all of these things in perspective and use a rational approach to change and improve what we can, while not needlessly worrying about the rest. This powerful philosophy still speaks to us today, in regard to our own personal storms that we may face in life and helps us eliminate all of the self-deception and negative thoughts that cloud our judgement. In this book you will learn about: ✓ The most prominent characters of Stoic philosophy ✓ Analysis of the 10 principles of Stoicism ✓ How to avoid negative thinking ✓ How to utilize your judgment without being influenced by others ✓ How to overcome your fears ✓ How to be in control in difficult situations ✓ How to develop calmness and resilience If you would like to learn to take on a Stoic outlook when faced with hardship, if you feel you could benefit by being able to resist negative impulses in favor of careful thought and analysis-this comprehensive book tells you everything you need to know.

Ancient and Medieval Philosophy, Series 1, No. 39This book examines the important but largely neglected issue of the intricate mutual influences between Platonism and Stoicism in the Hellenistic period, the Imperial Age, and after. Although this interrelationship is often termed "eclecticism," the authors of Platonic Stoicism reveal that the situation is much more complicated. Far from being eclectics, most Stoics and Platonists consciously appropriated material and integrated it into their own philosophical system. The dialogue between Platonists and Stoics testifies to active debate and controversy on central topics such as psychology, epistemology, physics, and ethics.

How can Stoicism inspire us to lead more enjoyable lives? In the past few years, Stoicism has been making a comeback. But what exactly did the Stoics believe? In Lessons in Stoicism, philosopher John Sellars weaves together the key ideas of the three great Roman Stoics -- Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius -- with snapshots of their fascinating lives, to show us how their ideas can help us today. In vivid prose, Sellars shows how the works of these three Stoics have inspired readers ever since, speaking as they do to some of the perennial issues that face anyone trying to navigate their way through life. Their works, fundamentally, are about how to live -- how to understand one's place in the world, how to cope when things don't go well, how to manage one's emotions and how to behave towards others. Consoling and inspiring, Lessons in Stoicism is a deeply thoughtful guide to the philosophy of a good life.
