Fig 4.3 – Stoicism

Text: Page 123

Joy for the Stoics came from accepting the reality that all humans are part of a divine plan symbolized by people in a fast-moving train living in the moment, calmly accepting the world as it goes by because everyone has a predetermined place to reach, a divine plan. The Stoics believed in a god, a divine force, a pneuma, that created and organized both the human soul, psyche, and the fragments of the soul of god, Zeus.

The Stoics believed that soul and body were one and had free will only in terms of the response of the soul to fate. The awareness that all people had a divine purpose would lead to respect among all the people of the world and the boundaries between nations would disappear, resulting in a worldwide government.
