Episode Info: We can have a more productive life through exercising moderation and self-control. We can question popular opinion; be introspective; take accountability for our thoughts and actions; stop making excuses and blaming others; limit our desires; shun a life of luxury; and be more content with fewer material possessions. The Stoic Philosophy Podcast explores the tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers including Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca. For the Stoics, a main focus is pursuing virtue to attain a well-examined life through practical applications of Philosophy – acting with good character, using reason to form accurate careful judgments about the world, and achieving contentment. Stoic writers focus on many perennial human concerns and urge people to take action applying what they learn to everyday life. Self-improvement is central to Stoic thought – strengthening and improving one's mindset. Support through Patreon and Paypal Donate: http://justinvacula.com/donate/ Like, share, subscribe!
