Which of the following is the most important tenet of Stoicism?
To resist playing a role
To feed our desires
To let go of what we cannot control
To understand that reality is either good or bad
Stoicism is a philosophy that encourages us to focus only on what we can control (e.g., our desires, emotions, judgments,
and reactions). We should not be upset by things that are beyond our control. Stoicism encourages us to reduce desire and
to view reality as neither good nor bad.

The emphasis is on finding truth, not on “winning” an argument.
The Socratic Method guides students to understanding rather than requiring them to memorize facts.
Students learn from interacting with each other, and the teacher facilitates this process.
The Socratic Method does not facilitate learning through students' interaction with one another. Rather, it is an exchange
between student and teacher, in which the teacher uses the student's knowledge to guide him or her to truth.
The Socratic Approach

“I have eliminated all plastic from my day-to-day life.”
“I serve meat to my family only on holidays and special occasions.”
"I only drive my car to work when it is raining or too cold outside.”
“I go to the farmer’s market if I have time to do so on the weekends.”
To live philosophically, a person must examine his or her beliefs to ground them in knowledge, and then act according to
those beliefs. By eliminating plastic from her life, Karen displays a consistent philosophical worldview. Driving to work
when it's inconvenient to walk, serving meat on special occasions, and shopping locally for groceries only sporadically are
examples of inconsistency in her worldview. [Show Less]
