Description

The manual: a philosopher’s guide to life is the rediscovery of Sam Torud from the writings of Epictetus. He explains in the introduction that in the fall of 2008, when the world fell into an economic crisis, he too suffered a psychological breakdown and his married life ended in separation and divorce. This is where enduring every day becomes a tiring struggle for him.

Introducing the book Philosophical Peace by Sam Toroud
For some time now, Iqbal has shown in books on the wisdom and philosophy of the ancient West that the teachings of ancient philosophers can be used to deal with the problems of modern man today. Stoicism is one of the most important schools that has come to the aid of contemporary man.

Philosophy is for living, not just for learning Epictetus. Stoic philosophy is at the service of contemporary man.

One of the most important schools that has helped contemporary man is portraiture. The book Philosophical Peace is the discovery of Sam Torud from the writings of Epictetus. He explains in the introduction that in the fall of 2008, when the world fell into an economic crisis, he too suffered a mental breakdown and his married life ended in separation and divorce. This is where enduring every day becomes an exhausting struggle for him. Sam Toroud writes: I desperately needed peace of mind.

In the same vein, he enters a bookstore and becomes acquainted with the works of Apictus and Marcus Aurelius. Sam Torud: Apictus and Marcus Aurelius are the pillars of the Stoic school in philosophy. I realized that Stoicism does not mean suppressing emotions and avoiding pleasures, but its essence is focusing on what is in the circle? It is our power to let go of everything we can not control.

I knew that Stoic philosophy underlies the best approaches to self-help, such as rational emotional therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Nearly ten years after the initial discovery of the wisdom of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius, I made it a part of my daily routine to read a piece of an old translation of their work every morning and rewrite it in plain, modern language.

Do I use these narrations? I made them myself, but I also made them available to everyone. If you are looking for peace of mind, I hope you like the Handbook (Philosophical Peace). Philosophical peace is the second title in the collection of philosophy and meaning of life.

The first title in this series was The Wise Spirit, which uses the teachings of Dr. Frankel, author of The Man in Search of Meaning, to provide guidance for daily life. Questions of life, the story of loneliness, who am I, philosophy in 40 ideas and simple and beautiful philosophy are other topics in this collection that will be published in the near future.

Excerpts from the book Philosophical Peace

I desperately needed peace of mind. In the same situation, he enters a bookstore and gets acquainted with the works of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius. Sam Torud: Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius are the pillars of the Stoic school of philosophy. I realized that Stoicism does not mean suppressing emotions and avoiding pleasures, but its essence is to focus on the things that are within our power and to leave to ourselves everything that we can not control.

I learned that Stoic philosophy is based on the best approaches to self-help, such as emotional-emotional therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Nearly ten years after the first discovery of the wisdom of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius, I made it a part of my routine to read a piece of an old translation of their work every morning and rewrite it in plain, modern language.

I prepared these narrations for my own use, but I also made them available to everyone. If you are looking for peace of mind, I hope you like the Handbook (Philosophical Peace).
