We will conclude our reading of A New Stoicism by Lawrence Becker. This includes chapter 7, “Happiness,” and a couple of appendices. We are especially interested in having people come who consider themselves happy. Then the author can demonstrate that since they aren't stoically happy, they aren't as happy as they think they are, or as they could be, or that it isn't the right kind of happiness. If everyone leaves unhappy at the end of the evening, we'll have succeeded.
