The left hand holds the clenched fist of the right hand

Introduction

Welcome to a free group for Stoicism in CT: Zenonians. Originally, the Stoics were called Zenonians. Stoicism was the dominant philosophy of life in Greece and Rome, spanning some 500 years. It remains relevant to life today.

The gesture of holding a clenched fist with the left hand was used by Zeno of Citium — the founder of Stoicism — to represent knowledge (Cicero, The Academics, 2.145); this gesture was the logo of our group.

Zenonians was open to the public, and no prior knowledge of Stoicism was required. A variety of events were offered, including seminars, literature reviews, practicums, and philosophical walks. This group was a wonderful way to connect with others interested in this philosophy of life, of living in accord with nature.
