Twenty-First Century Stoicism

Writer, Philosophy Professor and Modern Stoic – William B. Irvine – has posted a series of articles on bOING bOING as an introduction to the Stoic Philosophy:

  1. From Zen to Zeno: How I Became a Stoic
  2. Insult Pacifism
  3. Stoic Transformation

He has also written a book on the subject, A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy, which I hope to have a review of soon (I’m about 50% thru it).

(Note: Irvine is a Professor at Write State University in Dayton, OH – where I was a student for a single quarter. I didn’t have him for a class, nor do I think I’ve ever met him, but there still may be a little bit of bias toward my liking his work.)
