Stoicism Today – The Books

Two volumes of essays published in the Stoicism Today blog (in many cases expanded and revised) have been published to date.  Both of these volumes are edited by Patrick Ussher, the founding editor of the Stoicism Today blog. The first volume is available in several translations.  Work will soon begin on volume 3.

From Stoic ethics to emotions, from Stoic mayors and mindfulness to practical philosophy, parenting, psychotherapy and prisons, from Star Trek and Socrates to Stoic lawyers, literature and living in general, these books bring together wide-ranging collections of reflections on living the Stoic life today. You’ll read advice on coping with adversity, reflections on happiness and the good life and powerful personal testimonies of putting Stoicism into practise. But you’ll also read about the links between Stoicism and psychotherapy, Stoicism and mindfulness meditation and the unexpected places Stoicism can pop up in modern culture.

These volumes will be of interest to both academics and non-academics alike.  They present varied ways in which the 2,300 year old philosophy as a way of life remains relevant to the concerns and needs of the present day. They also make a great gift for anyone who would benefit from being introduced to – or learning more about – modern Stoicism.
