Mô tả sản phẩm

From the Publisher

The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User's Manual

The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User's Manual

From "Perspective:"

Practice saying to every harsh appearance, “You are just an appearance, and not at all what you appear.” If it has to do with something not up to us, let the thought be close at hand, "It is nothing to me."—Epictetus, Enchiridion

From "Adversity:"

The mind turns around every hindrance to its activity and converts it to further its purpose. The impediment to action becomes part of the action; the obstacle in our way becomes the way forward.—Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

From "What Others Think:"

The paths most worn and used are also the most deceptive. So nothing needs to be emphasized more than that we should not, like sheep, follow the lead of the flock in front of us – heading not where we ought to go, but where it goes.—Seneca, On the Happy Life

Chapters include

  • Judgment
  • Externals
  • Perspective
  • Death
  • Desire
  • Wealth and Pleasure
  • Valuation
  • Emotion

Product Description

“Farnsworth beautifully integrates his own observations with scores of quotations from Epictetus, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Montaigne and others. This isn’t just a book to read―it’s a book to return to, a book that will provide perspective and consolation at times of heartbreak or calamity.”―The Washington Post

See more clearly, live more wisely, and bear the burdens of this life with greater ease―here are the greatest insights of the Stoics, in their own words. Presented in twelve lessons, Ward Farnsworth systematically presents the heart of Stoic philosophy accompanied by commentary that is clear and concise.

A foundational idea to Stoicism is that we appear to go through life reacting directly to events. That appearance is an illusion. We react to our judgments and opinions―to our thoughts about things, not to things themselves. Stoics seek to become conscious of those judgments, to find the irrationality in them, and to choose them more carefully.

In chapters including
Emotion, Adversity, Virtue, and What Others Think, here is the most valuable wisdom about living a good life from ages past―now made available for our time.

Review

Praise for Ward Farnsworth:

The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User’s Manual:

“As befits a good Stoic, Farnsworth’s expository prose exhibits both clarity and an unflappable calm… Throughout
The Practicing Stoic, Farnsworth beautifully integrates his own observations with scores of quotations from Epictetus, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Montaigne and others. As a result, this isn’t just a book to read―it’s a book to return to, a book that will provide perspective and consolation at times of heartbreak or calamity.”― Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

“It is reported that upon Seneca’s tomb are written the words,
Who’s Minding the Stoa? He would be pleased to know the answer is Ward Farnsworth.”―David Mamet

“This is a book any thoughtful person will be glad to have along as a companion for an extended weekend or, indeed, for that protracted journey we call life.”―
The New Criterion

“This sturdy and engaging introductory text consists mostly of excerpts from the ancient Greek and Roman Stoic philosophers, especially Seneca, Epictetus through his student Arrian, and Marcus Aurelius as well as that trio’s philosophical confreres, from the earlier Hellenic Stoics and Cicero to such contemporaries as Plutarch to moderns, including Montaigne, Adam Smith, and Schopenhauer… A philosophy to live by, Stoicism may remind many of Buddhism and Quakerism, for it asks of practitioners something very similar to what those disciplines call mindfulness.”―
Booklist

Farnsworth’s Classical English Style:

“Mr. Farnsworth has written an original and absorbing guide to English style. Get it if you can.”―
Wall Street Journal

“For writers aspiring to master the craft, Farnsworth shows how it’s done. For lovers of language, he provides waves of sheer pleasure.”―Steven Pinker

“An eloquent study of the very mechanisms of eloquence.”―Henry Hitchings

“A great and edifying pleasure.”―Mark Helprin

“A storehouse of effective writing, showing the techniques you may freely adapt to make music of your own.” ―
The Baltimore Sun

Farnsworth’s Classical English Rhetoric:

“I must refrain from shouting what a brilliant work this is
(præteritio). Farnsworth has written the book as he ought to have written it – and as only he could have written it (symploce). Buy it and read it – buy it and read it (epimone).”―Bryan A. Garner, Garner’s Modern English Usage

“The most immediate pleasure of this book is that it heightens one’s appreciation of the craft of great writers and speakers. Mr. Farnsworth includes numerous examples from Shakespeare and Dickens, Thoreau and Emerson, Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln. He also seems keen to rehabilitate writers and speakers whose rhetorical artistry is undervalued; besides his liking for Chesterton, he shows deep admiration for the Irish statesman Henry Grattan (1746-1820), whose studied repetition of a word (‘No lawyer can say so; because no lawyer could say so without forfeiting his character as a lawyer’) is an instance, we are told, of
conduplicatio. But more than anything Mr. Farnsworth wants to restore the reputation of rhetorical artistry per se, and the result is a handsome work of reference.”―Henry Hitchings, Wall Street Journal

Farnsworth’s Classical English Metaphor:

“Ward Farnsworth is a witty commentator…It’s a book to dip in and savor.”―
The Boston Globe

“Most people will find it a grab-bag of memorable quotations, an ideal browsing book for the nightstand.”―Michael Dirda,
The Washington Post

“I want this book to be beside my bed for years to come, a treasure-house of the liquid magic of words.”―Simon Winchester

“A feat of elegant demystification…Farnsworth is able to focus on the finite material of metaphorical referents…a brilliant strategy, both in its utility for writers and the inherent insight Farnsworth’s divisions suggest about metaphors.”―Jonathan Russell Clark,
The Millions

From the Back Cover

This is a book about human nature and its management. The wisest students of that subject in ancient times, and perhaps of all time, were known as the Stoics. Their recommendations about how to think and live do not resemble the grim lack of feeling we associate with the word “Stoic” in English today. The original Stoics were philosophers and psychologists of the most ingenious kind, and also highly practical; they offered solutions to the problems of everyday life, and advice about how to overcome our irrationalities, that are still relevant and helpful now.

About the Author
