What Can We Learn from the Stoics?
A couple of years ago I interviewed philosopher Lou Marinoff on the theme of "the power of philosophy." We created this and other video clips in conjunction with the release of a book my place of employment published featuring Lou in dialogue with Daisaku Ikeda. That book was titled "The Inner Philosopher." In it, Lou said: "We cannot always or immediately alter our circumstances or indeed change brute facts. But we can always and immediately alter the views we take of them. This can make all the difference in the world." This is an element of Stoic philosophy, which he discusses in more depth here.
