Publisher's Summary

Stoicism is one philosophy that is not just theoretical in nature. It is something that you learn to adopt into your everyday life; its ancient wisdom is more relevant than ever today.

Dating back to around 300 BC in Athens, Stoicism was initially developed by Zeno of Citium. The essence of the philosophy is one of using grit and self-control as ways of overcoming destructive emotions. Despite the modern perception of the word Stoic, this does not mean to eliminate all kinds of feelings from your life. The goal, rather, is to transform your emotions. Stretching from the Hellenistic period to the 21st century, Stoicism has not lost its practicality in dealing with the problems of life, incorporating logic, self-dialogue, and meditation designed to keep your attention fixed on the present moment. It ensures a firm and consistent way of life that focuses on the choices you make so that failure ultimately leads to more success.

For anyone new to the Stoic philosophy, let this book guide you through everything you need to know in one easily accessible yet comprehensive introduction, from its origin and history to the core beliefs and principles. Most importantly, Stoicism: A Beginner's Guide to the Ancient Art, History, and Wisdom of the Stoic Philosophy focuses on why Stoicism is relevant to your life today.
