The Problem with Stoicism
Steven Gambardella

This is an excellent diagnosis of this new movement. I’m glad I came across it!

Stoicism seems to have taken hold because its practical admonitions happen to be compatible with a certain set of MBA/Startup Culture values (productivity, detachment, social atomism, etc). Some of the stoic self-help advice is handy enough (I happen to enjoy Ryan Holiday’s work), but it’s worth interrogating what’s behind them.

Like what you read? Give Mathieu Roy a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
