What we're about

We are a community of people from different parts of New England all interested in the discussion and application of Stoic philosophy. Our meeting location rotates, primarily around the Boston metropolitan area, we meet as far an hour from the city as well as within its borders. Please direct any questions to Pete Fagella, the group founder.

If you notice the links below one of them is for our main page (not the Facebook link). From there you can sign up for our mailing list, scroll to the bottom of the page. We often use the list to bounce around ideas for new meeting, as well as general discussion for instances where we can't wait for a meeting to discuss our philosophical thoughts. Meetup tends to be the final stage of a meeting, after the location is decided.
