Michael Tremblay speaks with Matt Sharpe about Stoicisms application in our work lives.
Matt is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Deakin University in Australia, who specializes in ancient philosophy as a way of life, psychoanalysis, and continental philosophy. He is also the author of the new book Stoicism, Bullying, and Beyond which we cover here.
We discuss the phenomena of work-place bullying and how Stoicism can be used to help victims of work-place bullying. The philosophy can be a crucial aid in developing the sense of agency and emotional strength needed to take action.
This conversation is a must listen for those interested in what Stoicism can teach us about dealing with harmful, cruel, or emotionally abusive people in our adult lives.
