Lessons in Stoicism is a history book by author John Sellars.
What aspects of your life do you really control? When you can’t guarantee that everything will work out in your favor? And what can Stoicism teach us about living together?
Over the past few years, Stoicism has made a comeback.
Lessons in Stoicism, philosopher John Sellars combines the key ideas of the three great Roman Stoics – Seneca, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius – with fascinating snapshots of their lives, to show us how their ideas can help us today.
Sellars shows how the works of these three Stoics have inspired people ever since, speaking and doing on some of the age-old issues that anyone is trying to navigate in life. all have to face. Their work is, essentially, about how to live – how to understand one’s place in the world, how to cope when things don’t go well, how to manage one’s own emotions and how to deal with others. .
The Lessons of Stoicism is a profound guide to a valuable philosophy of life.
This is a wonderful, insightful book on Stoicism. Small enough to slip into your pocket, it has the rare quality of a work that stands on its own, while introducing readers just enough to the words and thoughts of the Roman Stoics—Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius – that a person would naturally want to seek them out in order to get better acquainted with them and their works. Clearly the work of someone who has spent years contemplating Stoicism, both the theoretical and practical challenges involved in trying to live the life of a Stoic, the complete product.
Editing is unnecessary, elaborate and a distillation of what Stoicism is and what it is. still possible for the modern reader. Sometimes we search for a book, perhaps forming a desire for what we hope that book can have even if none of the books we have come across so far seem to be able to satisfy. that desire, until one day we actually found what we were looking for: the very book we most wanted to exist, and it did!
