A symposium entitled: Stoic Philosophy
Today on (Oct 28, 2023) in the presence of the head of departments and lecturer a symposium entitled (Stoic Philosophy), was presented by the (Asst. Prof. Dr. Newroz Ramadan Khalil) from the Department of English, Where it has been explained about Stoicism teaches the development of self-control and fortitude as a means of overcoming destructive emotions; the philosophy holds that becoming a clear and unbiased thinker allows one to understand the universal reason. Stoics regularly used tragedy as a metaphor for life, and Seneca’s use of the analogy demonstrates that tragedy was not for him the antitype of philosophy; it was the perfect vehicle for imaging lives that were antithetical to philosophy. At the end of the symposium, a set of questions and answers were raised on this subject.
