A guide to the good life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy

de William B. Irvine par Mauro Morgana

publié le 26/02/2019

By reading this koob, you’ll uncover what the ancient Stoics can teach us about living better and maximizing our time. Although their ideas date from over 2,000 years ago, they remain as relevant as ever.


You will also discover how to:

- Take advantage of what you have;

- Reduce anxiety;

- Control desire;

- Accept your destiny; and

- Handle society.


Nowadays, it is rare for people to ask themselves how best to live their lives. While in ancient times we would have had access to a whole school of thought on the subject, now we are pretty much left to our own devices, with our ancient teachings scattered to the wind. Having researched these ideas, William B. Irvine’s book “A guide to the Good Life” is a practical look at the concepts of the Stoics that underlines the relevance their concepts still have today.

A most welcome break from the modern era of dogma that is force fed to us by modern media in how to conduct our lives.

That’s an interesting book, I was actually talking about negative thoughts impacting our ability in moving forward and productivity in our set goals. I know a friend who is completely emotionless but he needs to realise it’s only the negative thoughts that need to squashed and not all his emotions.

It served as a good (and more detailed) reminder of things I already knew.
