This year, we were able to record video footage from each of the plenary talks at Stoicon 2018, and from two of the breakout talks and one of the breakout workshop sessions as well. If you couldn’t make it to London for Stoicon – or if you did, but would like to review any of those talks, you can find all of them linked to below. Click on any of the links to be taken to that video.
The Plenary Talks – The Morning
Tim LeBon – Report on Stoic Week Research (about 20 minutes)
Catherine Edwards – Strategies of Visualization in Seneca’s Letters (about 35 minutes)
Kai Whiting – Stoicism and Sustainability (about 20 minutes)
Antonia Macaro – How Buddhist is Stoicism? (about 30 minutes)
Breakout Sessions – Talks and Workshops – The Afternoon
Liz Gloyn – Lessons in Stoic Leadership from Seneca (about 24 minutes)
William Stephens – A Stoic Approach to Travel and Tourism (about 22 minutes)
Dan Lampert – Comparing Stoicism to Minimalism: Two Paths to Virtue
(about 20 minutes)
Piotr Stankiewicz – Two Great Misinterpretations of Stoicism: Ascetic and Conservative (about 30 minutes)
Gregory Sadler – The Stoic Heart: Stoicism and Partnered Relationships (a bit over an hour)
Keynote Address – The Evening
Anthony Long – Stoicisms Ancient and Modern (around 50 minutes)
As you will be able to tell by watching the videos, at this year’s Stoicon (as in earlier years),we had an excellent line-up of highly engaging speakers, connecting ancient Stoic philosophy to the situations and issues of modern life. On a personal note, I’ll mention that I particularly enjoy being able to view the breakout session talks I couldn’t myself attend (as I was leading a concurrent workshop). We’ll doubtless have another set of equally great talks and workshops at this coming year’s Stoicon.
We hope you enjoy these videorecordings and find them useful in understanding and applying Stoicism in your own practice!
