Massimo Pigliucci is is Professor of Philosophy at CUNY-City College and former co-host of the Rationally Speaking podcast. Earlier in the summer I watch a video Massimo did on Stoicism and Dying with dignity that really got me thinking about death and mourning from a secular perspective, and after a summer of scheduling hiccups we were able to sit down and talk about Stoic philosophy, mortality, and the fast approaching Stoicon and Stoic Week
Not going to lie gang, it isn’t every day somebody with Massimo’s bonafides agrees to come on the show, so we were really pretty psyched to have him on and I really think you’re going to enjoy the heck out of this week’s episode.
If you want to find more from Massimo his websites HowtobeaStoic.org and platofootnote.org are generally brimming with philosophical goodness. Do check him out because he’s really done A LOT more than I can do justice in the short space I’ve got here.
