Podcast #316: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy

Interest in Stoicism has experienced a renaissance in recent years. Yet despite the increasing popularity of this ancient philosophy, misconceptions still abound about it. For example, many people assume that to be Stoic means to not feel or express any emotion, including happiness, and that Stoicism requires one to live a bland and spartan lifestyle. My guest […]

For most men and boys-soon-to-be-men, long gone are the days when milking a cow was a chore as common as doing the dishes.

Meditations on Meditations: Reflections on a First Reading of Marcus Aurelius

While Stoicism is an ancient philosophy, it’s experiencing a bit of a resurgence in our modern world. There’s a plethora of new books and articles on the topic, most of them quoting what’s taken to be the Stoic bible: Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations. Much of what’s written about Stoicism these days, though, assumes that the reader […]
