This talk was the opening presentation at the recent Stoicon 2017 Modern Stoicism conference in Toronto. It covers who the Stoics were and what they believed, and is intended to bring complete newcomers up to speed so they’re ready to learn more about the subject.
In addition to the video of the presentation, I’ve also included a complete transcript of the talk and an embedded version of my slideshow.
