Zen and the Art of Stoicism?

Hat tip to Massimo Pigliucci IIRC?

As someone who’s first forays into philosophy were encouraged by Robert Pirsig I was intrigued to see the reference in this piece on Stoicism to Eugen Herrigel’s Zen and the Art of Archery, the work that prompted the form of Pirsig’s famous title.

The Stoic philosopher Antipater is a new one for me. Never really taken enough interest in the Stoics beyond the natural language use of the term. I may have to fix that.
