We need to adapt

Adaptations

Many thousand years ago after a shipwreck Zeno found himself in Athens with no money

After attending a lecture in a bookstore about Socrates Zeno wanted to know where to find one of those ‘philosophers’

After studying under a philosopher Zeno started his own school which today we believe is the origins of stoicism

When Zeno passed away Cleanthes took over the school and then Chrysippus and so on,

Most of the new leaders brought something new and adapted the philosophy slightly

Some students left and started there own schools based on what they thought philosophy should be

Fast forward to today where we have the likes of William Irvine who in is book adapted Stoicism slightly to the modern day.

The point things aren’t supposed to stay the same, as time goes on, and life ticks by things change and we need to adapt to them.

Stop holding on to the past
