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 a form or expertise or skill, the knowledge of how to live well in every way which shapes the whole personality. 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
