Forbes Article: Stoicism In The Current Mainstream

It’s always interesting to see evidence of a renewed interest in the Greco-Roman traditions that are relevant to this blog and its ideas.  From new translations of Homer to renewed interest in what Greek philosophy tells us about our lives, it seems people are finding their way back to these original sources of inspiration in the West.  This article talks about the value of Stoicism.  While its a little loose in some ways (while some Stoics were religious it is not accurate to call Stoicism a religion) the Forbes piece shows that people recognize what it has to offer.  Perhaps its simply because the times are not the sunniest and that always drives us to do a little soul searching.
