Coming soon! How to Live Like Socrates
Learn more about my four-week online course
Socrates was the first to call philosophy down from the sky, to place it in cities, to introduce it even into homes, to force it to consider life and customs, good and evil. – Cicero
Today enrollment opens for my online course, How to Live Like Socrates. The course will start on Sunday 5th of February, and lasts four weeks. I’m looking forward to helping new students apply Socratic philosophy every day to achieve a more meaningful life. It's great to be back, discussing my favorite philosopher! I’m currently working on a new book about Socrates so have lots to discuss from my ongoing research. This course only runs once or twice a year, when I can spare the time from writing, so don’t miss out.

Good news! My library purchased Verissimus!
Mr. Robertson! We've got to get you talking to John Vervaeke about modern Stoicism! He's doing a course right now called After Socrates. His is an eclectic Neo-Platonist approach that integrates Tai Chi, Buddhist Thought and Vipassana Meditation, and various other modern, cognitive-science oriented to form an "Ecology of Practice." You two would have an amazing conversation. He is at the University of Toronto. I think you two are allies, and I really want to try to bind all of the satellite ends to one (diverse) core. Also, are you at all familiar with the YouTube channel / Philosophical Community "The Stoa"? Those folks might be helpful to you, too.
Thank you for all of your magnificent work! Also, I noticed that my local library did not have a copy of Verissimus, so I put in a request to have them purchase it. We have a very good public library in Iowa City, and I have prompted them to buy such books as the Stoic Handbook of Lopez and Pigliucci, as well as How to Live a Good Life by Pigliucci et al.
