Description


There are many hidden gems in history that if uncovered, could unleash so much physical and intellectual wealth, which we need to restore our society back to glory, in the midst of the transformative changes brought by modernism. The Stoic philosophy is one such gem. It is an ancient philosophy developed to make people happy.
Many times, people seek happiness in the wrong activities, the wrong people and in the wrong things. The majority focuses on achievement so much that they forfeit the joy of the moment. Others are passive bystanders, and they derive a sense of satisfaction from criticizing and talking about other people. This book addresses both groups. The bystanders are advised to focus on their issues with the promise that an inward look and the development of virtue will bring you the most success. The overachievers are also advised to take a moment and relax, focus less on achievement and take the time to appreciate their surroundings.
This book provides a comprehensive discussion of all that relates to stoicism. It sets the foundation that stoicism was developed based on ethics, physics, and logic. The book also lists a number of philosophers that have been instrumental in the shaping and making of this philosophy including Seneca the Younger, Cato the Younger, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus. These wise minds helped to challenge, question, approve and even develop the Stoic philosophy.
You will also find therein, a comprehensive description of the Stoic disciplines, including desire, action, and assent. The discipline of desire is based on an understanding of physics, which explains how the world works. The discipline of assent advocates for the application of logic to daily living while the discipline of action advocates for the application of ethics to daily living. These three disciplines are the basis for the Stoic virtues, which are wisdom, courage, justice, and temperance. Upon these virtues is a list of principles enumerated in the book that when practiced, will lead you to live the happiest life possible.
Included also is a schedule listing of activities that you can do every day, from the morning throughout the day, and in the evening, to aid the uptake of this esteemed philosophy. If philosophy has stood its ground since the third decade, it surely is worthy of you trying out and practicing, especially because it is meant to ensure that you live a happy fulfilled life.
