Stoicism and the Art of Living

637 TUTOR: Darren Harper (BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing, PGCE)

Stoicism is often misunderstood as languishing through life without complaint, yet it is so much more. It is a whole system designed to help us with the daily vicissitudes of life. In this course, we will see how thinkers such as Seneca and Marcus Aurelius confronted one of the key questions of the ancient world, 'How should we live?' and supplied us with pragmatic ways in which to flourish.
