Massimo Pigliucci

Stoicism, despite its ancient origins, continues to hold significant relevance in contemporary times. To grasp its foundational concepts, it's essential to recognize three fundamental ideas that underpin Stoicism: being in harmony with nature, comprehending the dichotomy of control, and embracing a three-fold practice. The practice commences with the Discipline of Desire, which involves discerning the boundaries of our control. Next, the Discipline of Action equips us with the skills to navigate challenging social circumstances. Finally, the Discipline of Assent focuses on improving our judgment and internalizing Stoic principles.
