Stoics, Leadership and Persuasion – Reading Group – Leeds

There is to be a reading group on topics related to ‘leadership’ in the Stoics, based in the Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) Centre from April to June, 2014. The dates and times scheduled are given below. (NOTE: times are all 9-11am, which is a change from some previous publicity)

The plan is to read a variety of texts (in English translation) related to the early Stoa, and touching on the way in which the Stoa itself was led, and the ways in which the early Stoics thought of the influence and leadership that (a) the leaders of the school exerted on its participants; (b) that Stoic teachers exercised on those coming to learn about Stoicism; and (c) that the Stoic sage was envisaged as exerting persuasive influence on the non-sage.
