Episode 56: Conversation with Massimo Pigliucci

Massimo Pigliucci

Today’s special guest Massimo Pigliucci joins me to talk about practical applications of Stoicism, how Stoic Philosophy can benefit us in modern times, and address misconceptions about Stoicism.

We explore whether Stoicism encourages us to suppress or ignore emotions; what it means to be virtuous; what a good life looks like; Stoics’ view on wealth; whether Stoics are killjoys; social approval; insults; being offended; regret; toleration; and friendship among other topics.
