      What a limp dick take.

      Stoicism advocates for conformism to the "grand will", your city, your community, etc. It was written in the time of high trust societies. It tries to work from a position of pure reason (imo impossible).

      Buddhism has so many flavors this question is moronic. As a zen priest, if I had to say something, it'd be if reason is an x axis, and emotion is the y axis, we try to think in the z axis.

        They made a very worthy attempt, possibly the closest. We have never seen a more complete system of the human psyche.

          One day you'll learn rationalism is a failed attempt. I'll be here for you when you do.

            This attempting to rationalize an irrational world is absolutely a dead end intellectually

            No, western rationalism is a dead end specifically. But our human instincts and sensibilities are objective.

            Rationalism is literally the only philosophical jumping point left. Faith requires leaps and empiricism has to necessarily begin with a hypothesis based in... Rationalism.

            Just because you're too stupid to think of anything else doesn't mean everyone else is dummy. Go back to Start, do not receive $200.

            You're close, but not close enough.

    Yeah, Buddhism is a soteriological project within a nominalist metaphysics whereas Stoicism is a series of mental exercises to cope with radical determinism in a realist framework. There's basically zero overlap other than "self control is good".

      Ehh, its not just "self control is good", but stoicism replicates the core of Buddhist principles in western form. It even replicates the schism of the theravada/mahayana to a lesser degree with regards to reshuffling of the words to make it less nihilistic and more positivistic.

      The notion of suffering, way to reduce suffering through various mental exercises, a state of enlightenment/nirvana is in both schools. Its not a coincidence ofcourse as stoicism is basically transplanted from Buddhism.

      Ofcourse its not 100% buddhism, but core of stoicism is transplanted from spread of early buddhism
