Stoic Philosophy: Free Will (Video)
My Stoic Philosophy video series explores the philosophical tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from the practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers. I tackle many topics including handling adversity, finding meaning in life, working toward contentment, dealing with change, anger, and gratitude.
In this video, I revisit notes from a recent Stoic Philosophy discussion group concerning free will I hosted with the Humanist Association of Greater Philadelphia in Willow Grove, PA. I talk about individual issues within the umbrella of free will in reference to passages from Stoic writings exploring what may be outside of our control and inside our control; habits and changing habits; means to attain goals; and the possibility of changing thoughts and behaviors to better live; and much more.

I will be hosting a Stoic Philosophy discussion group on the topic of friendship on May 21, 2017. More details are here.
