The Best Stoicism Courses

The word philosophy comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means “love of wisdom.” So, whether you’re completely new to Stoic philosophy or have been inching ever-closer to sagacity for some time, the great thing is that it’s always possible to learn something new, to feed your hunger for wisdom. 

From books to podcasts, and blogs to videos, there is no shortage of information available to someone embarking on a quest of Stoic learning. One thing people might not immediately consider doing, however, is taking a Stoicism course. What better way to learn than through a sequence of lessons carefully compiled by an expert on the topic?
