So: what's Stoicism about, anyway? Since it's been a while since our last meetup, you may have forgotten! That's okay; at this meetup, we'll get back into the swing of things by going over the fundamentals again.
Dave Kelly has authored a document online outlining "the fundamental dogmas of Stoicism" with supporting text from Marcus Aurelius' Meditations. Our next meetup will be focused on describing, discussing, and debating the fundamental tenets of Stoicism using this text as groundwork for our discussion.
Please read "The Fundamental Dogmas of Stoicism" in full to prepare for the meetup, and come with 2 or 3 specific points you would like to bring up for discussion and debate.
This will mark the beginning of a transition from reading ancient texts into formal and informal writings by modern authors on Stoicism to see what they have to say about Stoicism, and if and how it can be applied to modern life. See you all soon!
