Massimo Pigliucci, PhD

Prof. of Philosophy at City College, Author of "A Handbook for New Stoics"

He is also the author or editor of 12 books, including the best selling How to Be A Stoic: Using Ancient Philosophy to Live a Modern Life. Prof. Pigliucci has published 162 technical papers in science and philosophy.

Pigliucci became a popularizer of Stoicism and one of the driving forces in Stoicism's resurgence in the United States in the early twenty-first century. His 2015 essay for the New York Times on the topic of Stoicism was one of the most shared articles to date.


Stoicism taught me that regret is about things we can no longer change and the right attitude is to learn from our experiences, not dwell on decisions that we are not in a position to alter.
