An excellent introductory text on Stoic philosophy. This is a revision of a correspondence course that the author used to teach, so each chapter has reading and writing assignments based on the writings of classical Stoic authors. Although I was already familiar with the main points Seddon discusses, this book organizes these classical writings which makes studying them easier. Plus, I appreciated the author's modern perspective in discussing what the classical authors had to say. Be aware that you'll need copies of Marcus Aurelius' Meditations and Seneca's Moral Letters to get the most out of this book since Seddon discusses them at length and only quotes short bits himself. I'd recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in learning about Stoicism. ( )
