Since this pandemic, there has been a lot of material about how Stoic philosophy can help one find solace during these tribulations. In this 60-minute session, with Ibrahim Al-Marashi, visiting professor at IE we will examine how philosophy from ancient Greece and Rome can help us navigate our modern times.
