Stoic Philosophy and Social Theory

Mutually exclusive disciplines for some and fully complementary for others, philosophy and sociology maintain a contrasting dialogue. In Stoic Philosophy and Social Theory (2020), Will Johncock defends the interest of bringing the two subjects closer together. However, it is not ‘philosophy’ in general that he confronts with modern sociological authors and concepts, but a system of practical philosophy that is thousands of years old: Stoicism.
