The Stoic Contemplation of Death

Free Mini-Course on the Stoic Contemplation of Death

This is a free mini-course about the Stoic Contemplation of Death. It's the text of a book chapter divided across several screens, with the ability for your to add comments on each section and discuss with others. Beginners will be able to follow this but it's probably also suitable to more experienced students of Stoicism because it focuses on a specific subject and draws on a wide variety of sources.

This chapter was originally intended for my Teach Yourself book Stoicism and the Art of Happiness (2014). However, the publisher didn't include it because of space limitations. It was planned to add it as a bonus chapter to the e-book edition but it was left out by mistake. So I've made it available online for free.

Terms & Conditions: By enrolling on this course, you give us permission to send you our email newsletter with information on Stoicism and related subjects. You can opt-out at any time, if you want, by hitting the unsubscribe link.
