SHSNY Freethought Day Brunch! Massimo Pigliucci! “Stoicism Today!”
October 11 at 12:00PM
Pete’s Tavern 129 West 18th Street
Massimo Pigliucci is a Professor of Philosophy at CUNY-City College, editor in chief of the online magazine Scientia Salon, prolific author, and Honorary Member of SHSNY who has lately turned his attention to the ancient Greco-Roman philosophy of ethics and resilience that is Stoicism. He says:
“Stoicism is experiencing a surprising comeback these days, positioning itself as the Western answer to Buddhism, with which it shares a number of similarities. In this talk I will explain the basics of Stoicism and argue that it is a philosophy highly suitable to the complexities of life in the 21st century, perhaps even a good complement to secular humanism.”
