Stoicism

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by F. Fontaine, Mar 15, 2012.

  1. Anyone a conscious or unconscious participant in stoicism? One book I'm reading currently is Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Its pretty much a series of Aurelius' personal writings on Stoicism and Stoic philosophy. Stoicism has always been interesting philosophy to me and one I can really identify with. I feel that there's too much bullshit in the world to get bogged down by so I pretty much exercise stoicism on a daily basis.
     
  2. Guilty as charged. Just gotta roll with the punches man.
     
  3. Even Bogie would have a nice strong drink every now and then.
     
  4. You might wanta read Enchiridion by Epictetus. I liked it, just as I liked Meditations, but I dont care much for other Stoic thinkers. They seemed like they lived very, very boring lives.
     
  5. Definitely a big part of my personal philosophy.

    Same. A combination of Buddhism and Stoicism is what I'm working with so far :D

    They're really damn similar.

    Vipassana meditation with Stoic psychological/analytical methodology really allows you to appreciate life a lot more :smoke:
     
  7. Funny you said that because Stoicism is very similar to confucianism and taoism.
