Massimo Pigliucci is a Professor of Philosophy at City College of New York. He has three PhDs—one in genetics, another in evolutionary biology and a third in philosophy.
And, most importantly for our purposes, he’s a practicing Stoic philosopher. (Kinda like another Professor of Philosophy/practitioner of Stoic philosophy we recently covered: William B. Irvine. Check out our Notes on his great books: and .)
In this book, Professor Pigliucci teaches us how to be a Stoic via an imaginary dialogue with Epictetus, one of the leading Stoic teachers of the ancient world.
It’s a wonderfully written, super-smart look at how we can use “ancient philosophy to live a modern life.”
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to explore some of my favorite Ideas we can apply to our lives TODAY so let’s jump straight in!
