How to Become a Stoic

Course description:

In this course we will use selected passages from Epictetus, Seneca and Marcus Aurelius to examine key features to living well, suggested askesis (exercises). We will also discuss how it is suggested that one can deal with grievous life events so that they do not unravel you!

Teaching approach:

Stoicism dates back to ancient Greece and Rome, but their ethics has an enduring, universal appeal. Modern Stoicism is employed often in philosophical counselling, and has been extremely popular in the last decade. The uniqueness of this course is it relevance to common every day issues, it's accessibility and yet insightful recommendations on how to live well.
