ZENO’S SECRET-stoic philosophy and the art of living

TALK, PLAY AND DISCUSSION

In the 3rd century BC Greek philosophers proposed ways of living a flourishing life for the attainment of happiness(eudaimonia) and tranquility (ataraxia). In this presentation Dr. Edward Spence examines the Stoics’ significance and relevance for the 21st century. His play ZENO’S SECRET explores dramatically their teaching on how to be happy in an unhappy world.

The presentation and play are followed by audience participation through discussion
