Some great articles mixed in with mediocre ones

This volume contains some great articles on Stoicism mixed in with mediocre ones that don't say much. I read them all because I didn't want to miss the good ones, but it would be fine to pick and choose the ones that seem interesting to you.

A great collection of essays on modern Stoicism

A great collection of essays on modern Stoicism as a practical life philosophy, including an essay by my wonderful wife, Tanya Brodd. Worth checking out if you are interested in Stoicism.

Volume II picks up where Volume I left off, moving us closer to a definition of Modern Stoicism.

Virtue is analysed in terms of four generic or cardinal virtues: wisdom, courage, self-control or moderation, and justice, seen either as four aspects of a single form of knowledge or as interdependent.” 1 likes
