Other than writing about philosophy. We feel the need to promote Stoicism as one of our main mission statements because we at the Stand Up Philosophers maintain that while life philosophies like Buddhism is flourishing worldwide with over 300 million adherents and gaining popularity in the west, in short it’s well preserved. Its western counterpart, Stoicism, however on the other hand we believe is under threat. Stoicism’s presence is only found online and in university philosophy departments so we want to help it and give it a special place here because we feel it is a western tradition that must be preserved.
