The Stoa was once a covered portico where Stoics met to philosophize. Now it’s a digital space, where we can gather and talk about what matters most right now, at the razor’s edge of this pandemic.

Philosophy, dormant during times of relative certainty and ease, comes alive just when it’s needed most. Once we admit, as Socrates urged, that we do not know what we thought we did, we can begin, out of this newfound knowledge of our own ignorance, to open ourselves up to what we can know together–and to how we can act in common based on this shared knowledge.
