College courses in Ethics tend to focus on theories of the moral rightness or wrongness of actions. This emphasis sometimes obscures the fact that morality is a social project: part of what makes a decent and stable society possible is that we uphold standards of conduct. We call out bad behavior, blame wrongdoers, and praise those who do the right…

Approximately 13.8 billion years ago, an infinitely dense state of an infinitely large universe lay dormant upon the backdrop of existence. Then, the expansion of everything.

"All this reading, all these quotes. This love of learning, our fascination with books. No one is saying it’s a bad thing. Because it isn’t.

Learn about that quip in today's Daily Stoic Podcast. *** If you enjoyed this week’s podcast, we’d love f…
 
“Today is the 4th of July. It’s the celebration of the American Declaration of independence, which was signed on this date in 1776.
