Strange is the story of Stoicism.

Three unconnected events – a shipwreck in Piraeus, a play in Thebes, and the banishment of a rebel in Turkey – connected three unrelated individuals to give birth to a philosophy. It was to endure two thousand years and offer hope and comfort to hundreds of thousands of people along the way.

Stoicism had seven formal leaders or “scholarchs,” but much of what we know of Stoicism today comes from four Stoics who lived after the all the scholarchs were gone. Dr Chuck Chakrapani tells the story of Stoicism through these eleven leading figures of Stoicsim.
