by Charles Bradlaugh
and George Stock
The current fascination in Stoicism might be explained in many ways: Its
insistence in being in harmony with Nature might appeal to the many
young people today worried about man’s relationship to the earth. Its
call for discernment might appeal to those of a religious mindset
seeking their calling or place in the world. Its promise of a life of
meaning and peace even in the midst of chaos might appeal to the person
who sees in the world today an analogy to the late the Roman Empire.
Whatever the case, it is my hope that by combining Bradlaugh’s fine
essay on Zeno along with Stock’s work on Stoicism as a whole the reader
might find, in one volume, an excellent introduction to this most
enduringly fascinating way of thought and life (Large Print).
