5,0 sur 5 étoiles Learn the practical applications of Stoicism through 26 mini-biographies
Commenté au Royaume-Uni le 4 octobre 2020
This is a great book that really brings to life the art of living the principles of Stoicism through 26 mini-biographies.

Ryan and Stephen have done a great job with their research to highlight the lives of these stoics. Whilst some of them are well known, there were many I had not come across and they range from being merchants, generals, writers, athletes, parents, professors, daughters and diplomats.

Each chapter starts with the Name, pronunciation, image and birth and death dates, starting with Zeno born in 334 BC and finishing off with Marcus Aurelius who was born in 121 AD. The chapters bring the essence of the life of each stoic. Ryan and Stephen mention in the Introduction that the aim hasn't been to have strict scholarly accuracy but actually bring out the moral lessons from the lives of each of the stoics. There is also a useful timeline at the end of the book to show the 500 years of Stoicism.

The book through each of the biographies, helps bring to life how the Stoic virtues of Courage. Justice. Temperance. Wisdom were lived by them. Interestingly it showed that many of the stoics did fall short of these values, they were tempted by wealth, made compromises, groped for fame, lost their temper, lied, were silent when they shouldn't have been and many other things. However, they teach through their choices why the virtues were important. You get to learn from their successes and failures. More importantly, it enables the reader to help apply philosophy to their own lives.

Given how 2020 has been for almost everyone, this is a great book to be able to understand the art of living no matter the circumstances and navigate a world with it's ups and downs. It is a great book for reflection and building your own understanding of how you want to live your life and the values you want to live by. I highly recommend the book.
