The idea is to try living like a Stoic for a week by doing things such as contemplating interesting quotes from ancient Stoic philosophers and engaging in mental exercises. You can find out more about Stoic Week, register, and download the handbook at the Modern Stoicism blog. You can do the exercises any time (you might say they're timeless!), but it's fun to share your experiences with others on the Facebook group and the Google+ group.
Last year I wrote four posts for what I called Sci-Fi Stoic Week 2015 (see here, here, here, and here). This year I'm not quite so ambitious, so I've decided to condense my Stoic Week blogging into one post (you're reading it!).
Stoicism, Star Trek, and Galactic Cosmpolitanism
Since we recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and a lot of people (including me) have noted Stoic themes in Star Trek, I thought it would be nice to concentrate on Star Trek for Sci-Fi Stoic Week 2016.
