Stoicism was a philosophy that flourished for some 500 years in ancient Greece and Rome, gaining widespread support among all classes of society.

It had one overwhelming and highly practical ambition: to teach people how to be calm and brave in the face of adversity. As the current exhibition Nero: the man behind the myth explores, one of its most famous proponents, Seneca, was the personal tutor of the emperor Nero himself.

At this special event, expert of ancient and modern Stoicism Dr John Sellars (University of London) joins journalist Eliot Haworth to explore how Stoicism remains immediately relevant to our lives today, particularly in these uncertain times.
