Publication Announcement: Stoicism Today Selected Essays Volume 4

Last year, we published volume 3 in the Stoicism Today: Selected Essays series, and this year, we follow that up with volume 4. We are happy to announce that the paperback version of this next book is now available in softcover, and will soon be available in a kindle format version as well!

Here is the cover for Stoicism Today volume 4, a beautiful design by Rocio De Torres Artillo (whose website you can see here)

We at the Stoicism Today blog, and in the larger Modern Stoicism team, had long wished to follow up the two earlier volumes published by the first author of the blog, Patrick Ussher.  We brought out volume 3 in paperback and kindle versions last November.  So we’re very happy to be bringing out volume 4 a little less than a year later!

This volume brings together twenty-eight pieces originally published in the Stoicism Today blog, with some of them expanded and revised. They range from scholarly presentations on technical topics to meditations on Stoicism in day-to-day life, from advice and experiences to controversies about ancient and modern Stoicism.  In addition, the volume includes one of the online symposia from Stoicism Today, this time about “Stoicism and Women,” including the thoughtful contributions of seven authors.

All of the profits from sales of Stoicism Today: Selected Essays volumes 3 and 4 go directly to the Modern Stoicism organization, and will be used for supporting the ongoing work of the not-for-profit organization.  I would also like to note that the many hours of work Leah Goldrick and I put in bringing this volume all the way to publication in the present, as well as other associated costs, were underwritten by the generosity of a patron of philosophy, who wishes to remain anonymous.

At this point, you might be asking: Where can I get this new book?

  • The paperback is available for purchase at Amazon, right here. It lists for $13.99.
  • The Kindle version will be coming out soon – we’ll announce it here with a follow-up post.  It will list for $4.99.

When you go to the Amazon page, you can use the “see more” to check out the Table of Contents.  You can also read the editor’s introduction as well, if you’d like.

You’ll be seeing a lot more about Stoicism Today volume 4 (and perhaps about its predecessor, volume 3) in the months to come – here in Stoicism Today, in social media, and in the Modern Stoicism YouTube channel (and perhaps in other places as well).

We should also mention that Leah Goldrick will be on the Recent Books and Authors panel for the Stoicon 2022 conference, coming up next Saturday, October 29, where she’ll discuss some of the work that went into bringing Stoicism Today: Selected Essays volumes 3 and 4 to press!
