Got problems with your soul?
These days, you’d see a psychotherapist.
But, back in the day, it was the philosopher who’d help you optimize–they were the preferred physician of the soul.
This book is about the philosophical roots of modern psychotherapy. Specifically, it outlines the connection between cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Stoicism.
Ryan Holiday recommended it in his great book The Daily Stoic. (I picked it up along with a bunch of other titles we’ll be exploring.)
As a lover of both ancient wisdom and modern science, I really enjoyed it. It’s not your typical self-help book but if you, like me, are deeply interested in the intersection of ancient (Stoic) philosophy + modern psychotherapy, I think you’ll dig it. (Get a copy here.)
It’s packed (!) with Big Ideas. I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
