Had anyone read or learned much about stoicism? I started reading yesterday and listening to podcasts, and I wondered if any of you have any recommendations? Thank you

A Guide to the good life: the sacred art of stoic joy - it’s a life changer! It’s written by an academic who was tired of stoicism being misinterpreted so brought it back to its fundamental roots and explained how it can be applied to modern life.

Check out Epictetus! His Enchiridion is a nice, short snapshot of some of his thinking: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enchiridion_of_Epictetus

Also, Marcus Aurelius. His book, Meditations comes from his diary and it’s wonderfully helpful.

Meditations is great, but I recommend you read it the way the title implies - chose a small section (it’s written in a way that this can easily be done) then meditate on it rather than read it as a novel.

I highly recommend Ryan Holiday. good author and makes it digestible for the modern era. i read the daily stoic daily (funny that) and stillness is the key really puts things into perspective.

while meditations is a must along with the other founding works you should start here for examples of how it is applied in the average day to day and then move on to the original stuff.

he also has a podcast that you can listen to on spotify.

I'll link his web page and a youtube channel that you might find useful.

Tautologies make for terrible "advice".

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
