Ancient Stoic philosophy is experiencing a well-deserved modern revival because its timeless ethical and psychological teachings focus on the art of living — and how to flourish — in a world that feels out of control.

This website, Stoic Insights, offers modern reflections on classic Stoic teachings, along with information on the best Stoic resources available today.

Stoic Insights is edited by David Fideler. David holds a PhD in philosophy and has been involved his entire life in exploring the contributions that ancient philosophy can make to the contemporary world. His books include Restoring the Soul of the WorldThe Pythagorean Sourcebook and Library, and he was invited to write the article for The New Dictionary of the History of Ideas on “Pythagoras and Pythagoreanism.”

David has spoken to audiences across the United States and Europe and is currently writing a guide to the Stoic philosophy of Seneca for W. W. Norton.
