Stoic Practice

One request I received on my YouTube channel was an explanation of Stoic practice and application. How do you go beyond watching videos and use this stuff in your life? I’ve come up with a simple 5 step heuristic.

  1. Primary sources
  2. Scholarly analysis
  3. Attention and application
  4. Special Tools
    1. Writing
    2. Meditation
    3. Asceticism
  5. Eternal Return

Relevant to that, I have an Amazon Idea list of recommended Stoic reading.

If you want a more structured approach, I recommend the College of Stoic Philosophers which can be found here:

We’re nearing the end of the Introduction to Stoicism video series. I hope to see you all again next week. May the Gods keep you!

Stoic Ethics

Finally! At long last my video on Stoic Ethics is up!

I’ve compiled my Introduction to Stoicism videos into a playlist here:

I’m going to check all the great feedback I’ve gotten to date, and if there’s enough material I’ll do a quick Stoic Q&A video.

Otherwise the video channel will move on to another topic. Thanks for all the great questions and of course just for watching. If you want to parley you can find me at, in addition to here, YouTube and my FB page.

Stoic Logic

As promised, here’s an overview on Stoic Logic.

This one is a little dry, but wait for the Easter egg at the end!

Sorry about the awkward jump cut at the conclusion. My focus was starting to wane and I don’t want to take the time to re-shoot. Hopefully the next video will be a little cleaner.
