Philosophy Café: Is Jordan Peterson a Stoic?
Is Jordan Peterson a Stoic? That is the question we will be asking in Octobers Philosophy Cafe. The University of Toronto's professor has been vilified by many in the media and has been glorified by many of his fans. The Modern Stoic communities thoughts have been mixed, with some saying there are parallels between his thought and Stoicism, while others like Massimo Pigliucci making the case that he is not a Stoic. Come out on Oct 24th to discuss over a drink or two. Disagreements will be conducted with stoic resolve. :) Optional Reading Materials: https://modernstoicism.com/jordan-peterson-and-stoicism-by-justin-vacula/ https://modernstoicism.com/a-response-to-how-stoic-is-jordan-peterson-by-kai-whiting-and-leonidas-konstantakos/ https://modernstoicism.com/nope-jordan-peterson-aint-no-stoic-by-massimo-pigliucci/

    Welcome to Stoicism Toronto: the city’s premium meet-up for Stoic-minded individuals. While Stoicism flourished in Ancient Greece and Rome, its eminently practical philosophy remains highly relevant to our lives today. Join us in pubs and coffee shops across Toronto, while we study the great Stoics and learn to develop resiliency, tranquility, and soundness of mind. We will have a variety of events, including book clubs, guest lectures and practice nights.

    Note: The Stoicism Toronto (http://www.meetup.com/Stoicism-Toronto) group is part of the Stoic Fellowship (http://www.stoicfellowship.com/), an international community whose aim is to foster the knowledge and practice of Stoicism through online and in-person activities throughout the world.
