A Man in Full

I’m doing 3 books for the Rudius Media Book Club for the next few weeks. The discussion is now open, and we’re looking at A Man in Full, The Meditations and Epictetus.

Here are the questions we’re addressing, at least initially

1) What is a ‘Man in Full?’ What do the Stoics tell us about being a “man?” (or woman) In the book, who is the true man? Is it Croker or Conrad?

2) How do you handle misfortune?

3) Where does meaning come from? How do we fulfill our nature? Where does one find the benchmarks to define themselves by?

Check it out.
