Episode 12 – The Hellenistic Age Pt. 3 – Hallmarks of Stoic Ethics


On this episode of the podcast, we continue our discussion of Stoicism, this time focusing on ethics. We learn about the three most noteworthy contributors to Stoic ethics–a crippled slave, a statesman, and the emperor of Rome–and find out how much they actually had in common. We discuss what angry sports fans and Stephen’s English bulldog could learn from Stoic ethics, as well as why you should start each day expecting the worst. All this and more on the latest episode of Philosophize This!
