Stoicism: A Detailed Breakdown of Stoicism Philosophy and Wisdom from the Greats: George Tanner
Stoicism, one of the oldest Western philosophical schools, has enchanted scholars and the general public alike for over 2,000 years. Where some accounts of human nature and the particularly human good fall short by the reduction of human being to physical or psychical phenomena, Stoicism´s power lies in engaging with the whole range of human experience, addressing rationality, emotion, piety, will, and both inner and outer impressions, each on their own terms, in language that treats each as significant in its own right. Stoicism is an active philosophy. That means that it is not enough to know its doctrines, one must also live them, develop habits that expand on and complete their ideas in practice. Practice, therefore, is also the focus of this book. The development of the listener´s inner and outer life, that they may follow their own path and discover what it means to ´´live life in accordance with nature´´. This book is a general introduction to Stoicism that pulls no punches when faced with the more complex aspects of Stoic doctrine. Topics addressed include: The history of the ancient Stoics. The nature of good and evil, virtue and vice, and positive and negative externals. The difference between those things in our control and those things not in our control. Stoic Logic and practical reasoning. Stoicism´s role in the development of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Stoic exercises and daily practice. Theology´s role in Stoicism and Stoic cosmology.

There are many hidden gems in history that, if uncovered, could unleash so much physical and intellectual wealth needed to restore our society, in the midst of the transformative changes brought by modernism, back to glory. 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 audiobook 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 audiobook 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. 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.Inside this audiobook you will find:The most detailed explanation of Stoicism philosophyA comprehensive list of the philosophers and scholars who have helped shape StoicismA complete description of the Stoic disciplinesThe most informative description of the virtues of StoicismA wholesome analysis of ways 1.

Cicero´s De finibus, written in 45 B.C., consists of three separate dialogues, dealing respectively with the ethical systems of Epicureanism, Stoicism, and the ´´Old Academy´´ of Antiochus of Ascalon. An encyclopedic survey of this nature is of particular importance for its detailed account of Stoic ethics. This critical edition of the text, based on a fresh study and collation of the manuscripts, is the first to appear for many years and the first to reflect a clear understanding of the whole manuscript tradition. It will be the second in a series of editions of Cicero´s philosophical works; the first volume, the De officiis, edited by Michael Winterbottom, appeared in 1994.
Cicero´s Stoic Paradoxes is a brilliant and accessible summary of the six major ethical beliefs of Stoicism. The nature of moral goodness, the possession of virtue, good and bad conduct, the transcendence of wisdom, and the sources of real wealth are all discussed with the author´s characteristic intensity and wit. This is the only existing modern translation of this little-known classic, as well as the most detailed study. Also included here is Cicero´s visionary essay ´´The Dream of Scipio´´, which is a compelling testament to his belief in the immortality of the soul. Taken together, these two works provide a glimpse into the mind of one of the most influential thinkers of antiquity. For this special edition, translator Quintus Curtius has returned to the original Latin texts to provide a modern, fresh interpretation of these forgotten classics. Supplementary essays, summaries, and textual notes provide additional guidance and help present these works to a new generation of listeners. Quintus Curtius can be found at qcurtius.com. 1.
