In this conversation, Michael and Caleb discuss six different kinds of Stoicism:

  • $toicism
  • broicism
  • stoicism (little s stoicism)
  • Traditional Stoicism
  • Academic Stoicism
  • Modern Stoicism

Some of these are misunderstandings, or at least incomplete, other's are much more meaningful uses of the philosophy. Michael and Caleb talk about each with the aim of correctly understanding theory and determining what's useful to apply in ordinary life.

Stoa Conversations is Caleb Ontiveros and Michael Tremblay’s podcast on Stoic theory and practice.

Caleb and Michael work together on the Stoa app. Stoa is designed to help you build resilience and focus on what matters. It combines the practical philosophy of Stoicism with modern techniques and meditation.
