In this episode, I speak to Massimo Pigliucci the author of many books on Stoicism from How to Be a Stoic, A Handbook for New Stoics, and A Field Guide to a Happy Life to name a few. Massimo is currently a Professor of Philosophy at the City College of New York. His research interests include the relationship between science and philosophy and the practical philosophy of Stoicism. Massimo also recently came out with a series of lectures through The Great Courses titled Think Like a Stoic: Ancient Wisdom for Today’s World.

In the conversation, Massimo and I discuss:

  • The connection between science and philosophy
  • What makes up a philosophy of life
  • How to choose a philosophy for your life
  • The importance of Stoic practices
  • How to think about anger and much more
