Description (podcaster-provided):

Stoicism is the pursuit of Virtue (Aretê), which was defined by the Ancient Greeks as "the knowledge of how to live excellently," Stoicism is a holistic life philosophy meant to guide us towards the attainment of this knowledge through the development of our character. While many other Stoicism podcasts focus on explaining Ancient Stoicism in an academic or historical context, Practical Stoicism strives to port the ancient wisdom of this 2300-plus-year-old Greek Philosophy into contemporary times to provide practical advice for living today, not two millennia ago. Join American philosopher of Stoicism Tanner Campbell, every Monday and Friday, for new episodes.


Themes and summary (AI-generated based on podcaster-provided show and episode descriptions):

➤ Stoicism principles • Virtue ethics • Modern application • Character development • Emotional management • Health and well-being • Free will and fate • Philosophical discussions • Practical advice • Ancient wisdom interpretation

"Practical Stoicism" is a podcast hosted by American philosopher Tanner Campbell, focusing on the application of Stoic philosophy in contemporary life. The show provides practical advice derived from Ancient Stoicism, aiming to help listeners navigate modern challenges through the development of personal virtue and character. Unlike other Stoic podcasts that may take an academic or historical approach, this one emphasizes real-world application.

Episodes explore a wide array of themes central to Stoic thought, including the pursuit of virtue, the management of emotions, and the development of rational control over one's life. The discussions often address how to deal with health, personal and societal pressures, anger, regret, procrastination, and other everyday challenges using Stoic principles. There are also explorations of Stoic approaches to more profound topics such as fate, free will, equality, and the interconnectedness of all things through the concept of Oikeiôsis.

The podcast does not shy away from addressing misconceptions about Stoicism, such as the notion that it requires an emotionless or ascetic lifestyle. Instead, it promotes a balanced understanding of the philosophy, recognizing that Stoicism allows for emotions and pleasures but stresses rational moderation. Listeners will find analyses of famous Stoic texts, methods for applying Stoic principles to personal growth, and responses to common philosophical and ethical dilemmas.

Interspersed with practical tips, personal anecdotes, and listener questions, the episodes aim to provide a comprehensive toolkit for anyone looking to incorporate Stoic philosophy into their daily lives. Whether discussing the compatibility of Stoicism with other belief systems, the nature of the soul, or the role of Stoicism in modern societal issues, this podcast offers a thorough examination of how ancient wisdom can guide contemporary living.
