Hi Sunday Stoic Listeners and welcome to my first co-host episode of The Sunday Stoic. I am Al and I would like to use this opportunity to look at the why of stoicism.After we have been studying the philosophy for a while, we get used to the things we should remember and the things we ought to do. We may know about the dichotomy of control. We may know the four virtues. But can we remember why?Why should we follow these ancient teachings? What's in it for us?Find out more:www.sundaystoicpodcast.com
In this episode, guest host Greg Sadler discusses why reading Stoic texts, in particular classical primary sources, is an important practice for anyone who wants to really understand and progress in Stoicism. He draws in particular on three letters by Seneca, 33, 94, and 95, which discuss whether one can adequately understand Stoic philosophy by relying upon quotations or even precepts, and why it is important to keep going back to study the Stoic texts we have available.You can find Greg on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/GregoryBSadler/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/drgbsadlerTwitter - https://twitter.com/philosopher70or at his business, ReasonIO - http://reasonio.com/

As Stoics it is not enough for us to accept what happens to us, but to embrace it, to learn from it, to grow from it, to appreciate it, maybe even to love it.
