    [New] (How tobe a Stoic) by Massimo Pigliucci I hadn’t read about stoicism before yet it puts so well in words many of my life philosophies and practices Especially those hard for me to explain Like being ready to lose anything or anyone and caring about them at the same time Or that I don’t have to be a robot to stay calm if events are out of my controlThe idea that living a good life depends on understanding both how the world and human's reasonin

How tobe a Stoic review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Massimo Pigliucci à 3 characters In the tradition of How to Live and How Proust Can Change Your Life a philosopher asks how ancient Stoicism can help us flourish todayWhenever we worry about what to eat how to love or simply how to be happy we are worrying about how to lead a good life No goal is elusive In How to Be a Stoic. It s taken me a long time to write this review as I hoped to be able to impart some of my own experiencesconclusions about ideas and methods contained within the book But what i ve learned is that while I appreciate the features of Stoicism i m so far away from being Stoic that I might as well be an advertisement for how not to do it The modern idea of stoicism as the endurance of hardship without showing feelings is somewhat applicable I m all about that stereotypical English emotional repression but I m than prepared to complain about anything and everything so even that s pretty much out In any case that definition is a long way from the Stoicism examined in the book of which there are three disciplines desire action assent and four principles practical wisdom courage justice temperance The comprehensive presentation developed by Massimo Pugliucci sets out a series of ways of thinking and coping with life that meld ancient ideas with modern society offering advice that s genuinely relevant All joking aside I felt that I learned something here not just about how ancient authors approached the uestion of how we should live but in how their answers still have something sensible and practical to say to us todayMassimo Pigliucci formats the book in a Socratic style presenting the issues through a personal dialogue with Epictetus It s bit disuieting in the beginning but I can see the benefits It certainly allows for a reflective approachable conversational style that has a distinctive sense of the author s individual journey He likes to do things with a smile but that doesn t mean the seriousness suffers For something that could well be labelled self help this has a good deal of history with primary source evidence throughout It allows for a layered interpretation with Epictetus Cicero Marcus Aurelius and many others own words providing the basis for the discussion with Pigliucci evaluating their meaning and applying their ideas to the overarching framework of Stoic philosophy It s not always an easy read but as the author takes you through the three main sections he makes sure to show you the value in grounding the discussion in the evidence That way it s not just about what people thought but why and how they came to the conclusions they did which is then followed up by the ways in which this knowledge can be applied to your own life As such the book consistently provides concrete examples of what works and why even before it reaches the final section of practical exercises It gives the author s recommendations a validity and rationality that not all books in this genre achieveReading this made me understand why there has been considerable contemporary interest in stoicism to the extent that there s now a yearly Stoic week for all those who want to try to live like a Stoic and incorporate the tenets into their daily lives There are so many websites and online articles that finding information about the philosophy is very simple but nevertheless this book would be a valuable addition to any search thanks to its depth and accessibility Above all it makes you think about your own behaviour and how it is possible to change it for the better whilst providing an effective resource to which you can return for answers whenever life throws you some new challengeARC via Netgalley
