Donald Robertson (Part 2) - Life is an Opportunity to Search for the Truth
Today's guest is Donald Robertson, renowned expert on stoicism. I was looking forward to this chat for a long time, and it does not disappoint. Stoics are mainly concerned with their wisdom and their character, and therefore process events that happen to them according to the effect of the event on their wisdom and character, first and foremost. This is an extremely powerful tool for dealing with life's hardships, including the pandemic. Donald is a writer, cognitive-behavioral psychotherapist and trainer.  He’s a specialist in teaching evidence-based psychological skills, and known as an expert on the relationship between modern psychotherapy (CBT) and classical Greek and Roman philosophy. His therapy practice specialized for many years in helping clients with social anxiety and self-confidence issues. He is also the author of six books and many articles on philosophy, psychotherapy, and psychological skills training. His latest book How to Think Like a Roman Emperor: The Stoic Philosophy of Marcus Aurelius was #1 best seller in philosophy, and he's also edited and written the introduction to Capstone Classics' new edition of The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. In Part 2, we discuss: * What happens if you imagine the presence of things that are lacking? Pain * What happens if you imagine the lack of things that are present? Gratitude * Rather than thinking you have things, consider they're on loan from nature * Exhibit empathy without agreeing, as therapists do * The fourth thought of wisdom: don't stress, think clearly and solve the problem * Anger is not a feeling, it's a way of perceiving life * "The universe is change, and life is opinion." * Is stoicism a religion? * Moral virtue, and the ancient thought that it was inherited rather than learnable * Which is better, death or living? * The Apology of Socrates * How all experiences are opportunities to contemplate * Life is good if we use it well, and bad if we exploit it * Socrates's sacrifice for truth, virtue and wisdom Instagram: @mo_gawdat Facebook: @mo.gawdat.official Twitter: @mgawdat LinkedIn: /in/mogawdat Connect with Donald Robertson on Instagram @howtothinklikearomanemperor, Facebook @robertsontraining, on Twitter @DonJRobertson, and on his website, donaldrobertson.name
