About the Event

Greetings fellow Stoics!

Today we're hosting our first open discussion on our Book of the Month series. You can check out the page for our Book Series at https://www.berlinstoics.com/book-series but essentially, each month we recommend one book or a selection of books to read and at the culmination of that month we come together and discuss what we read. The books or texts (sometimes they may be journal articles or others) are focused on Stoicism and related topics.

For this month, we'll be reading books which give a broad yet well-rounded review of Stoicism; some of these choices cover the philosophy as broadly as possible, while others may center around one of its core themes or ancient figures. In any case, for this discussion please select and read at least one of the following books:

You do not need to have any knowledge or experience with Stoicism before having read this book.

A couple of words: (1) If you haven't already, you can join our Telegram discussion group and our announcements channel by contacting us with your cell number and we'll add you. (2) The link to this event will be active between 20 and 10 minutes ahead of the start time, and we use https://meet.jit.si/ for our video conferencing. (3) Lastly, we have recently been streaming our events live on youtube and saving them on file, especially for those who cannot make particular events; at the start of each event, Steve will of course ask if everyone is okay or anyone has a problem with this. Furthermore, we only share recordings afterwards if we reach the threshold of 4 participants (other than the facilitator).

We look forward to seeing you there!
