History of Stoicism Youtube Documentary

I have just come across a great documentary on Youtube that explains stoicism clearly and succinctly.  There is a lot more that could be said on the subject, but this covers all the essentials in only seven minutes.  If you just want to know what stoicism is, you’ll know when you have finished watching it.  If you want to know more, this would make a good starting point.

  1. Calvus

    Searching for the word “stoicism” on YouTube yields many hits, but few of them lead to an understanding of either moral behavior or nature.

    There was some good stuff there, but too much emphasis on the theology of the Stoics, and not enough on their ethics, which remain relevant a few thousand years later.

  2. Good point Calvus. We could do with a bit more stoicism.
