Today’s Stoic revival is the second one. The first resurgence of Stoicism actually happened during the Renaissance.

In this podcast, David Fideler and I discuss what Modern Stoics today can learn from the Renaissance Humanists.

It’s a conversation that touches on history, education, and virtue ethics. It should be of interest to anyone who wants to increase the influence of Stoicism on society.
