The Stoic Art of Living

Tom Morris is the former Notre Dame philosophy professor whose classes became a campus legend and whose nationwide speaking engagements have electrified the audiences of corporate America. Continuing in his mission to bring philosophical wisdom into the trenches of everyday life, he shows how ideas of Stoic Philosophy ? which emphasizes goals like gaining command of one's passions and achieving indifference to pain and distress ? are completely up to date in their relevance to the practical issues people confront in the 21st century. Divided into three accessible sections, the book focuses on three leading Stoics: the slave Epictetus, the lawyer Seneca, and the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. From the bottom of society to the upwardly mobile middle to society's very top, the book highlights how these Stoics' insights relate to modern experience. Philosophy buffs and fans of Morris's other works will appreciate this latest application of ancient wisdom to new concerns.
