New England Stoics 2019-07-14 meeting

We met at the Public Garden in Boston's Back Bay.

We met in the beautiful Boston Public Garden for a painted-porch-like discussion of Stoic logic like they used to do in 300 BC Athens.

This meeting's topic was to be logic, which is one of the three topoi (topics, or fields of study). However, as we had the good fortune to welcome a number of newcomers, the discussion centered around a broad overview of Stoicism; we enjoyed a vibrant discussion of precepts and their implications.

Attendees were invited to bring an umbrella even if it was sunny out, if they wanted to practice doing things that contradict norms (like our ancient Cynic philosophical kin did) to remind ourselves that virtue/excellence are the only true good, by walking around in the sunshine with an umbrella for a laugh.

Hosted by the New England Stoics.
