Stoicism and

its Founder

by Charles Bradlaugh

and George Stock

The current fascination in Stoicism might be explained in many ways: Its insistence in being in harmony with Nature might appeal to the many young people today worried about man’s relationship to the earth. Its call for discernment might appeal to those of a religious mindset seeking their calling or place in the world. Its promise of a life of meaning and peace even in the midst of chaos might appeal to the person who sees in the world today an analogy to the late the Roman Empire. Whatever the case, it is my hope that by combining Bradlaugh’s fine essay on Zeno along with Stock’s work on Stoicism as a whole the reader might find, in one volume, an excellent introduction to this most enduringly fascinating way of thought and life (Large Print).
