About Applying Stoicism

Applying Stoicism took its original form in 2013 as a public social media group founded by Travis Hume. From its inception, the group has been dedicated to guiding others in modern-day practice of the ancient virtue-ethics philosophy of Stoicism. Weekly content has been freely published to this end, based exclusively upon first-hand applications of the philosophy; This custom remains intact to the current day. The effort has been joined by other content creators, whose endeavors contribute to the groups principal goal.

From 2013, Applying Stoicism’s original social media group population has grown to over 1,500 members, and has recently expanded to Patreon, Google+, and Twitter. Plans are under consideration for video and audio content. A book is in development, committed to helping others develop basic working knowledge in applying Stoic philosophy to everyday life.

Travis Hume is Applying Stoicism’s creator, administrator, and writer.  He aims to write full-time on the application of Stoic philosophy, and the restoration of its system.

    • Hello Dr Venkateshan. Thank you for contacting me. Feel free to e-mail me at applyingstoicism@gmail.com. I have no other sites other than this one. The oldest content that i’ve published is in the “applying stoicism compilation” found in the “compilation” tab at the top of this site.

      In the same “compilation” tab you will find a “weekly workshop” project that I conducted in college; it is the closest thing i’ve published to a course series. Otherwise, I don’t currently conduct any courses in the traditional sense. I intend to one day, once I believe i’ve reached an appropriate point in my practice as a Stoic.

    Dear Travis Hume,
    Thanks , i am grateful for your forthright in your reply, i appreciate and look forward to derive moral strength in reading your blogs and it amy be earliest you should conduct a lengthy course on the model of how Seminary run courses on Bible,
    it would benefit the intellectual community even you run a course of 6-9 months to start.
    Thanking you
    Best Regards
    Dr Venkateshan
