Not only the Greek Stoa, but also some lines and memories of Stoic thinking are to be addressed and presented with this audio book. The leitmotif is the stoic manner, whose freedom consists in determining one's own attitude towards the events instead of wanting to change them oneself. It is precisely in the affirmation of fatigue or remote-determined-it-must that he gets rid of the compulsive character and gains an inner attitude that can be described as free. Freedom thus becomes a subjective disposition, not an objective fact, bestowed by law or some other external authority. 'What is alive is indestructible, remains free in its deepest servant form, remains one and if you divorce it to the bottom, remains unwounded and if you break it to the core and its essence flies from you victoriously under your hands. ' (Friedrich Hölderlin) 'Neither the sharpness of Aristotle nor the abundance of Plato was fruitful for me in the least. On the other hand, I had already developed a certain inclination towards the Stoics, and now I managed to bring about the Epictetus, which I studied with great interest. ' (Goethe: Poetry and Truth)
