For anyone curious about stoicism, “A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy” by William Braxton Irvine is an excellent introduction to the modern practice of stoicism with pointers to further historical and notable works.
Thanks for putting this together! Books in the public domain often end up on sites lacking in readability.
I just recently responded to John Saddington’s Medium story The Power of Stoicism with three book recommendations on Stoicism: 1) Meditations, by Marcus Aurelius, and 2) The Obstacle is the Way and 3) The Daily Stoic, both by Ryan Holiday.
I like audiobooks, they’re good for walking to and from work. Here’s the abridged thoughts of prominent Stoic Epictetus, the “Enchiridion”, which I enjoyed listening to:
Here’s “Meditations”, but I haven’t listened to it myself yet:
“Do not waste the remainder of thy life in thoughts about others, when thou dost not refer thy thoughts to some object of common utility.”
Seems like a useful philosophy in tech. People should be professional and work on a common goal rather than focus on personal conflicts.
