School of Thought Notebooks: The StoicsThe School of Life
3 Notebooks, 3 Thinkers.
The history of philosophy is filled with some fascinating 'schools of thought' dedicated to tackling life's big problems in distinctive ways. We're especially keen on The Stoics (who know how to suffer), The Pessimists (who know how to sigh) and The Existentialists (who know about angst).
In their honour, we've created exquisite notebooks set, each dedicated to a philosophical School of Thought. Each notebook carries an introduction to a great thinker on the inside front page, his name beautifully printed on the cover (we especially like Seneca and Heidegger) - and otherwise empty pages for your own projects.
Each paper banded set contains 3 notebooks (one each of plain, grid and lined paper) 125 x 178mm | 64pp
The Stoics : Seneca, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius
The Stoics are the ideal thinkers for our anxious and treacherous times. Their ideas were formed in the volatile world of ancient Greece. They emphasise that things tend not to turn out as we would ideally like; how bad luck, or a wilful decision made by distant, powerful people can wreck our plans. We need to hear this. The Stoics wanted to know how they could cope with chaos. They wanted to be less vulnerable and more – as we still say in tribute to them – stoic. They offer an intriguing and valuable corrective to the assumption that everything will be fine, that we can do anything and have everything. They invite us to join them in their quest for order, calm and reason in a difficult world.
