21st Century Stoicism: Developing Character, Living with Purpose

(On Zoom)

Stoicism has played a major role in shaping ethical considerations for over two millennia, profoundly influencing religious doctrines and renowned philosophers. Despite its frequent misinterpretations and critiques, Stoicism’s fundamental principles can guide us to leading a purposeful life. At the heart of Stoic philosophy lies the conviction that our well-being and growth stem from living in accordance with nature and honing our logical skills regardless of our circumstances.

Joe Bullock will help us explore how pursuing virtue can contribute to human fulfillment and will highlight some of the key theories that form the foundation of Stoic practices. In addition, he’ll examine Stoic Cosmopolitanism, a belief in the universal community of all people that fosters a spirit of fairness, transcending nationalities, races, and cultures. There will be opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of Joe’s talk.
