[PODCAST] #335: Stoicism and Empathy (Brett on Sex, Lies and Anarchy)


Antigone, Nick and I discuss my conversations with Bill Buppert. Antigone expresses some concerns about Stoicism, while Nick defends and further explains the philosophy. This podcast includes tangents into empathy, slavery, Consequentialism and dystopian future scenarios.

Bill Buppert's Stoicism Reading List:
-A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy
-A Man in Full
-The Emperor's Handbook: A New Translation of The Meditations)

To get better acquainted with the philosophy:
The Obstacle Is The Way: Tim Ferriss Audio Edition

Here is the most comprehensive list I could find that I agree with all the choices: Stoicsm Books

This is a terrific resource and dirt cheap on Amazon:The Stoic and Epicurean Philosophers: The Complete Extant Writings of Epicurus, Epictetus, Lucretius and Marcus Aurelius
