Podcast: Stoicism for good times?!

In this episode of the Philosophy as a Way of Life podcast Rob and Massimo discuss the misconception that Stoicism is a philosophy helpful only during bad times. On the contrary, just like any philosophy of life, Stoicism is useful every day, no matter what the circumstances. Indeed, strictly speaking, from a Stoic perspective there are neither “good” nor “bad” times, but only times that can be handled well or badly, depending on our own judgment. Moreover, Stoicism isn’t something that may be picked up right when a crisis hits, as it needs to be practiced ahead of time so that one is well prepared to handle the crisis. Otherwise, it would be like learning to pilot a ship in the middle of a storm. (listen at Anchor)
