The Stoa
The Stoa
The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately. - Seneca


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.

@jdj_writes Great thoughts, Jeremy. At the edge of my thinking – I do not like any movement that instrumentalizes art to shine awareness on their message. I sense Game B and other nearby philosophical scenes will unconsciously do that but can change course. …Read more
@jdj_writes I also LOVED how Tyson ended the session. It was so beautiful. The directionality I am personally taking – treating my Stoicism as being an “artist of life” – I am now treating everything as art. If everything becomes art, the word art is no longer needed. …Read more

@TiffaniMKE @WisdomRebel So, you want a sense of the perceived Truth (3rd person), containers for truthfulness to flow (2nd person), and the spirit of truth to flow through you (1st person). This will allow for “polarity artistry,” the Game B version of polarity management – …Read more
