An Article for Stoicism Today

The blog, Stoicism Today, recently ran an article I wrote titled, The Stoic Love of Community. This piece was written specifically for their site, so if you'd like to read it, follow the link above. As the title suggests, I wrote about the Stoic insistence that we are social beings meant to love and support all people, everywhere.

No school has more goodness and gentleness; none has more love for human beings, nor more attention to the common good. The goal which it assigns to us is to be useful, to help others, and to take care, not only of ourselves, but of everyone in general and of each one in particular.
— Seneca, On Clemency 3.3


Michel Daw: Women and Stoicism

Michel Daw, Stoic teacher and swell guy, has something to say concerning 'Women and Stoicism.' You can sum up his post with a quote from his wife, Pamela;

"Stoicism is about being human and transcends gender."

Of course, women don't need permission from men to participate in Stoicism. However, men do have a responsibility to challenge our community to think clearly and act inclusively. I am happy to see Michel set the example. I hope to follow it.
