Example text

Philosophy for the Stoics was a love of wisdom (philo-sophia) and calls for a per­ sonal search for mastery over one's own life and emotions through reason. The Stoics developed confession or personal disclosure as a tool for increasing self-knowledge (Georges, 1 995). The Stoics taught inward self-sufficiency through reason and wisdom regardless of how external tragedy might affect one's life. The Stoic philosopher Epictetus (born ca. 50 CE) anticipated the core of cognitive psychology when he wrote that it is not events that shape human life but rather the view that humans take of these events (Beck, Rush, Shaw, & Emery, 1 979 ).
