One thought on “Stoicism Today: ‘Are Stoics Ascetics’, A Rebuttal

  1. Excellent article. I think the main distinction is between the sage and the prokopton. The sage will do all things in accord with virtue which is the state the prokopton is progressing toward. How to progress requires ascetic practises in order to control our impulses long enough for us to realize what is and isn’t in our control.
