"To relax the mind is to lose it."
Stoic Six Pack 2 brings together six more essential texts for students of Stoicism: Consolations From A Stoic by Seneca, On The Shortness of Life by Seneca, Lectures and Fragments of Musonius Rufus, Ethical Fragments by Hierocles, Meditations In Verse by Marcus Aurelius and James Blake, The Stoics by Diogenes Laertius.
In addition to these six books there is also Seneca the Stoic, a biographical essay. Each work has been newly revised, edited and curated for the digital age. There is a complete Musonius Rufus and the rarely published Hierocles. Consolations From A Stoic contains all three of Seneca's consolations - To Marcia, To Helvia and To Polybius. On The Shortness of Life also by Seneca is presented in a brand new translation by author Damian Stevenson. The Stoics by Diogenes Laertius is a fascinating 3rd century biography of the first Greek Stoics - Zeno of Citium, Dinoysius the Renegade, Chrysippus of Soli et al and there is also Meditations In Verse, an interesting Victorian poetic homage to Aurelius.
Stoic Six Pack 2 is an amazing collection of masterworks and rarities, a must-read for fans of Meditations, Letters From A Stoic and Stoic philosophy in general. This collection is a "one-stop" for those wanting to be introduced to the teachings and wisdom of Stoic Philosophers.
