- We need to bring Stoicism into a modern context and understand that the Stoics could only see the world from their point of view and point in history. We should take what we’ve learned in the past 2,000 years since Stoicism began and allow our modern understanding to interact with the Stoic theories so that we can advance the philosophy.
- The dichotomy of control is an ancient idea that has without a doubt stood the test of time.
