We likely all have our own ideas as to what the traditional stoic looks and acts like. Presumably someone with a “stiff upper lip” who experiences events but doesn’t really feel them. Overall, our imagined stoic holds his/her feelings close to their chest and rarely deigns to emotional levels frequented by those lacking a stiff upper lip. However, this conjured up notion of a modern stoic is a misrepresentation of the ancient Greek philosophy of stoicism—a philosophy which knows a thing or 2 about feeling emotions. Here to discuss with us what stoicism can teach us about embracing change and why doing so might be the key to a good life is author and Reader in Philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London, Dr. John Sellars.
