Stoicism, a school of Hellenistic philosophy which originated in the third century BCE, is popularly linked with a philosophy of life which encourages us to be resilient and ‘stoical’ in the face of circumstances over which we have no control. In this form, it has understandably enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past two years. However there is much more to the philosophy of stoicism which is a remarkably integrated study of logic, physics, cosmology, and ethics. In this subject, we will undertake a critical exploration of these various aspects of Stoic thought.
