Projects

Most staff research is based on individual research projects, many of which are externally funded. There are also clusters of research expertise, enabling fruitful synergy between colleagues.

Featured project

Stoicism Today

The Stoicism Today project started with a workshop at the University of Exeter in early October 2012, which explored the applications of Stoic philosophy for the modern day.

The project is run by an international team of academics and psychotherapists working together to explore what the ancient philosophy as a way of life, Stoicism, still has to offer today. Since 2012 the team has organised four online life-guidance programmes and three public events on Stoicism in London. The Stoicism Today 2016 public event will be held in New York City.

The project is at the centre of the impact case study (“Ancient and Modern Approaches to Wellbeing”) that Gabriele Galluzzo and David Leith are preparing for the REF 2020. 

Stoicism Today website

Stoicism Today started with a workshop at the University of Exeter, U.K., in early October 2012 which explored the applications of Stoic philosophy for the modern day. We then formed as a team of seven academics and psychotherapists working together to explore what the ancient philosophy as a way of life, Stoicism, still has to offer today.

STOICON is an annual meeting of people interested in exploring Stoicism as a philosophy of life.

The 2016 edition of STOICON is sponsored by the Department of Philosophy of the City University of New York and the K.D. Irani Fund for philosophy.
