I just heard this one while at work, and loved it. I love existential philosophy and this one a nice change of course i thought from religion. I’m curious if Point Of Inquiry plans on doing more of this philosphy mp3’s/podcasts?

I’ve never gone over stoicism, but it seems neitzsche new it perhaps. I really dig philosphy as a guide to living, and sampling views and seeing how they work, and the effects.

Theres not enough emphasis on how to live, and i appreciated you guys having this episode, hopefully it wont be the last. :)

I listened to this one some time ago, but it is definitely one of my favorites! What I remember about Kurtz’s definition of stoicism is “having a noble attitude.” After listening to this podcast I wanted to find out more about Epictetus and stoicism in general. That’s how I discovered DT Strain’s Philosophy Blog . He even designed a stoic emblem. 


Fiction is fun, but facts are fundamental.
