“The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User’s Manual” by Ward Farnsworth
University of Texas School of Law dean Ward Farnsworth has published a new book which combines his own observations and knowledge with a long running list of quotations from the masters of Stoicism, Epictetus, Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, Montaigne, and others.
The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User’s Manual, published by David R. Godine, Inc., is a book that provides insight, inspiration, and direction by combining ancient wisdom with modern context. That, supplemented with Dean Farnsworth’s own insightful commentary, makes the complex wisdom of these ancient philosophers accessible to everyone.
About his latest work Dean Farnsworth writes, “When anyone today says something really wise, the Stoics usually said it first.”
