Stoicism in a World Out of Your Control

​An ancient belief system made new, Stoicism teaches us how to accept the things we cannot change and how to live a good life. It helps us improve our outlook, increase our wellbeing, and thrive in the face of adversity. But how does one live like a Stoic? In this Olio, philosopher Massimo Pigliucci guides us through a series of spiritual exercises, each based on a common obstacle. Learn how to distinguish between things that you do and do not control, focus on the former, and achieve more peace of mind.

Teacher: Massimo Pigliucci

Massimo Pigliucci is the K.D. Irani Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York. He is the author of How to Be a Stoic: Using Ancient Philosophy to Live a Modern Life and A Handbook for New Stoics.
