How to Be a Stoic: An Interview With Massimo Pigliucci We first interviewed Professor Massimo Pigliucci back in 2015 after his popular piece in New York Times on Stoicism became one of the most shared and viewed articles on the site. And today, with the release of his new book on stoic philosophy we decided to again reach out and ask him about all the imaginary conversations he had with Epictetus in the book (a once common literary structure that is sadly rare these days). We also used the opportunity to ask him about useful Stoic exercises we can apply in our day-to-day to pop culture recommendations to his thoughts on the rise in popularity—and accompanying criticism—of Stoicism. Enjoy the interview that follows and don’t forget to check out his new book, How to Be a Stoic: Using Ancient Philosophy to Live a Modern Life, which is out now. Your new book offers an exploration of Stoicism through conversations with Epictetus. How did you decide to take this approach? Exactly. Good question. Related posts:

The New Electrified Bikes From VanMoof Are Really Hard To Steal It’s not all the time that a company’s product gets correctly compared to both Apple and Tesla (which it seems just about every brand is shooting for). The new electric bikes from VanMoof, the Electrified S2 and X2, are sleek and modern (Apple-esque) and all electric (the Tesla nod) and they’re shipping in May or June, available for pre-order now. With a motorized top speed of 22 miles an hour and a Turbo Boost function that gives you instant acceleration, they’ll make hills less of a chore. They’ll go 37 to 90 miles on a charge (depending on how often you’re using that Turbo Boost) and come with a whole host of anti-theft deterrents including rider-recognition through your phone, a tamper-detecting extra loud alarm and a push button stealth lock at the back wheel. Even with all the enhanced anti-theft features, a bike worth a few Ks is a mighty tasty target for a thief. [Get one]
