    Berlin Stoics introduces itself for the first time into utilitarianism, an ethical framework distinct from virtue ethics. As Stoics and eclectics we must study all philosophies to get a better perspective of ethics in general and come to truthful conclusions about the world.

    meet.jit.si/BerlinStoicsEnds
    Despite a marginal consensus among academics today, now and in antiquity there's ambiguity as well as contention between those who ground the end to Stoic ethics in eudaimonia and those who ground it in virtue. Which drives you? Is Stoic ethics eudaimonistic or is eudaimonia simply a byproduct?
