Stoic Week 2016: Oct. 17-23


Beginning on Monday, October 17, Bates will participate in Stoic Week 2016, an online, international event dedicated to living like a stoic philosopher for a week.

The theme for this year is stoicism and love. Students, faculty and staff are all invited to participate in the event in a number of ways: by enrolling in the online course, Modern Stoicism, by following the event on Twitter (#StoicWeek), or by subscribing to the event’s dedicated blog.

Members of the Bates community can also participate on campus by joining a panel discussion on stoicism, scheduled for Tuesday, October 18, from noon to 1:00 at the Benjamin Mays Center. Kathy Low (Psychology), Susan Stark (Philosophy), Harry Walker (Classical and Medieval Studies), and Kate White (Psychology) will lead an informal discussion of stoicism across intellectual disciplines.
