Stoicism is a philosophy of personal ethics informed by its system of logic and its views on the natural world.

According to its teachings, as social beings, the path to eudaimonia (happiness, or blessedness) for humans is found in accepting the moment as it presents. Stoicism has always been the kind of philosophy that gets passed from one person to another.

During his reign as emperor, Marcus was the most powerful man in the world. Stoicism A school of thought that flourished in Greek and Roman antiquity. It was one of the loftiest and most sublime philosophies in the record of Western civilization.

In urging participation in the affairs of man, Stoics have always believed that the goal of all inquiry is to provide man with aFile Size: KB. Again, the Stoics, as for instance, Chrysippus, in the first book of his work on Lives, say, that the wise man will take a part in the affairs of the state, if nothing hinders him.

For that he will restrain vice, and excite men to virtue. In the book I translated of our favorite Stoic passages from the big three stoics Marcus Aurelius, Seneca and Epictetus but also some of the lesser known like Zeno, Cleanthes, and Chrysippus.

The simplicity is great. The second book that I would recommend reading is the famous Handbook or Encheiridion of Stoic Philosophy, written by Arrian, a student of Epictetus, based on his teacher’s lectures.
