  3. 3. ONTARGETFREE WILLSTOICISM BASICS:
  4. 4. ONTARGETHaving a “good life”No one is forced to pursue a “good life”, but it is up to each individual to putaside things in which he has little or no control whatsoever.• This includes indifference towards pain and pleasure, poverty and riches.
  5. 5. ONTARGETRely on yourself to be happy"Man is disturbednot by things, butby the views hetakes of them."This phrase summarizes stoic thought. It is up to you how you deal withproblems or whatever life gives you.

  10. 10. ONTARGETDoes this conflict with Christ’s teachings?Both Stoicism and Christianity state:• an inner freedom in the face of the external world,• a belief in human kinship with Nature or God• and the futility and temporarity of worldly possessions and attachments.• Both disregard the passions and inferior emotions such as envy andanger, so that the higher possibilities of ones humanity can be awakenedand developed.

  12. 12. ONTARGETStudents’ Great Philosophical QuestionsThe point of philosophy is to ponder thequestions that life presents. Students ofphilosophy (and, perhaps, students of life)have raised and will continue to raise some ofphilosophy’s greatest questions:• Why?• What?• Will this be on the test?• Should I worry about this?So how will stoicism help you on your life?LegacyAre you a philosopher?“We have two ears and one mouth, so weshould listen more than we say”Zeno of CitiumThe Stoics presented theirphilosophy as a way of life, andthey thought that the bestindication of an individualsphilosophy was not what a personsaid but how he behaved.This is why later thinkers of theRoman era, adapted Stoicism totheir own set of beliefs and eventoday, as a way of life it is stilluseful to us.
  13. 13. ONTARGETA STOIC’S ADVICE:Summary
  14. 14. ONTARGETSummarizing:Stoics would not make a big fuss about little (or even thebig details) in life.They would probably just say:“Main advice for handling any difficult thingin life: Put it in perspective and get over it.”
