Philosophy Stoic Camp 2023
From May 15-19, interested students and others will meet at the nearby Table in the Wilderness camp, in Centennial, WY, for a weekend of Stoicism. Group studies along with early morning and evening hikes, lots of good food, and some down time, everyone will return to society with a better sense of "stoic calm."
Participating in Stoic Camp, hosted by the University of Wyoming Department of Philosophy, includes engaging in a rigorous study of the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, in both small groups and large discussions, augmented by guest speakers.
In addition to the more serious study, the participants will engage in outdoor activities, including but not limited to, hiking, bonfires, and waking up to watch the sunrise on the final morning, as a direct response to one of the Roman Emperor's recommended meditations. Hosting Stoic Camp in Centennial, Wyoming, allows for a perfect opportunity to immerse oneself in nature.
The Goal of the Stoic Camp is to experiment with living in a thoroughly philosophical way, using the stoics as our model, and to explore what it means to live intentionally.
