269 Review of A Guide to the Good Life by William B. Irvine


This week I am joined by my wife Hannah Braime to discuss William B. Irvine's book, A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy. This book argues that the philosophy of stoicism is relevant to modern life and can be used to help you live well, according to your own values. We recorded the episode for the Psychology Book Club. I am sharing it here because the themes are highly relevant to The Voluntary Life.

  1. Really insightful discussion. Thanks!

    To me stoicism is the ultimate form of self empowerment since it enables and individual to find tranquility independent of their environment, society, the opinions of others and so on and so forth.
