Philosophy of Stoicism

Course Details

Day Thursday Time 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Start Date 13 May 2021 Finish Date 03 June 2021 Duration 4 weeks Venue 572 Park Rd Park Orchards

This workshop series provides an overview of the ancient philosophy of Stoicism and introduces learners to the major thinkers of the school and its development through time.

It considers the way Stoicism has remained relatively ‘intact’ as it moves across the ages, how it responded to pandemics and how it is visible and practised today in the modern world.

The workshops look at belief systems and art forms such as poetry to demonstrate the ways Stoicism inspires thought and action both in the ancient world and today. Gain a sense of the relevance of Stoicism today, how the act of journaling, seizing the day and pursuing happiness is still relevant today.
