Congratulations to Nancy Sherman on the Publication of Stoic Wisdom: Ancient Lessons for Modern Resilience

Posted in News Publications

Professor Sherman’s book, Stoic Wisdom: Ancient Lessons for Modern Resilience, has recently appeared on Oxford UP.

“Engaging sympathetically yet critically with the ancient texts, she ultimately fashions her own Stoicism for today: based not on detachment but on resilience and adaptability, not on emotional hardness but on empathetic attunement to the needs of others, not on a retreat from politics but on a commitment to change what we cannot accept.” –Martha C. Nussbaum, University of Chicago

Congratulations to Professor Sherman!
