STOICISM AND THE ART OF LIVING: THE DISCIPLINE OF DESIRE

Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 February 2023

 

This course will focus on what the Stoics referred to as ‘The Discipline of Desire’, which explores what it is, and is not, proper to want. In considering the application of Stoicism to the modern world, we will explore such questions as ‘What is in our power?’ and ‘How do we live according to Nature?’
