My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss. I am, first and foremost, an Orthodox Jew.

Over the past two decades I have been exploring the relationship between Judaism and Stoicism - where they overlap, where they differ, and how they complement each other. This year I started ...

The ones promoted are the cool heads. The deeply respected friends are those who remain calm.

To me, stoicism merges questions of meaning of life, consciousness and the practicalities of functioning as the best human you can be.

There are so many things we tell ourselves we have to have. They are nice to have. But it’s not what we need. --- And in today's Ask Daily Stoic, Ryan discusses the strategies he uses to identify …
 
There are two seemingly contradictory ideas in Stoicism. The first is that we should not let externals dictate our actions. The second is that we are all part of a larger whole. In sum, the question becomes: is it Stoic to be a product of your environment? Or perhaps: if you are different around different people, are you still genuinely yourself (a…

When we free ourselves from the pressure of knowing…
 
History is the same thing happening over and over again, Marcus Aurelius said. There’s nothing new under the sun. And yet, like all things in philosophy, the opposite idea must also be held true at the same time. The Stoics would also agree with what Stanford professor Scott Sagan once said, “Things that have never happened before happen all the ti…

People have different definitions of greatness or success. Maybe you think yourself powerful because you have a lot of people working for you. Or successful because you have a full calendar.

He had considered not going public with it. He had wanted so badly to be able to keep saying, to get credit for being the guy who says, ‘I’m sixteen years sober.’ But he could not.

The idea of showing up for yourself is a bit odd; how could you not show up for yourself? You are you, after all! However, we all fall short of showing up for ourselves.
