Philadelphia Stoics, Ancient Philosophy for Modern Times
February 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join Hugh Taft-Morales in learning about the local group of thoughtful folks known as Philadelphia Stoics. Their goal is “to introduce Stoic philosophy to anyone interested in living a happier and more fulfilling life and to help students of Stoicism practice the philosophy in their daily lives.” Stoicism is a practical philosophy for guiding people in living a good life through cultivating personal excellence, or virtue. Stoicism involves focusing on what we can control in life and not worrying about things we cannot control, enhancing healthy emotions through reasoned judgment, and treating all of humanity with compassion and respect. Come discuss how Ethical Culture overlaps and differs from this applied philosophy of life from ancient times!
