‘The Stoic vaccine’ 3rd dose: Freedom – Philosophical workshop (Taipei, Taiwan)

Promotion of Philosophy

In the third workshop learning about Stoic wisdom we encountered the concept of “Freedom”. We discovered what kind of freedom does not relay on external circumstances and although not easy to obtain, can be practiced through continuous efforts and forged into a durable inner strength that can help us face the uncertainties of our times.

“Some things are in our control and others not…The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered; but those not in our control are weak, slavish, restrained, belonging to others…If you suppose that only to be your own which is your own, and what belongs to others such as it really is, then no one will ever compel you or restrain you.” (Epictetus)
