“The ethical virtues are about improving your personality and being a better human“ – Massimo Pigliucci.
Massimo Pigliucci is one of the most representative world figures of modern stoicism. Doctorate in Genetics, Biology and Philosophy of Science. Member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Committee on Skeptical Research. He currently works as a philosophy professor at the City College of New York. Author of 11 books, including How to be a Stoic and recently How to Live a Good Life.
Massimo is one of the first and great drivers of the Stoic philosophy of our times. In 2015 he wrote one of the most shared articles in the New York Times on Stoicism. Pigliucci also writes about Skepticism, denial of climate change, intelligent design, pseudoscience and philosophy.
“Stoicism has changed my life for the better; now I am less irritable, I pay more attention, I am more equanimous” – Massimo Pigliucci.
Disrupt Everything #111 – Massimo Pigliucci
“Stoicism is the western equivalent of Buddhism“
In this new episode, I interview and talk with Massimo Pigliucci about stoicism and how this philosophy of action helps you lead a good life. It is a real honour to have been with Massimo for more than an hour asking him about everything that I wanted to know about Stoics, philosophers, practicality, lifestyle, differences, history, context, modern stoicism and the art of living. This opportunity has undoubtedly been the perfect complement to the Stoic Life experiment.
A podcast that also explores ethical virtues, humanistic psychology, Aristotelians, Epicureanism, Buddhism, anger, tricks, resilience and philosophy.
“Would I do that on the last day of my life?“
