Do you approve of the Stoic philosophy presented in the discourses of Epictetus, the meditations of Marcus Aurelius and the writings of Lucius Annaeus Seneca?
How do you reconcile the Stoic idea of relinquishing all attempts to control external events with the need for protection of one's self interests? Wouldn't strict adherence to such a philosophy turn one into an easy target for social and emotional abuse?
Do you accept the ideas of the Stoics as applicable for living in today's times? Do you reject any of their ideas? What is your view and your criticism of them?
And if Stoicism cannot be accepted fully, what is a philosophy that may provide reconciliation of the existential chaos with order?
