Quote: "The interview discusses the influence of Stoicism on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)".

I find this a largely realist and natualistic philosophy.
It would be interesting to see parallels and test compatibility and/or tensions between this and Nietzscheanism/Satanism in terms of a viable philosophy of life.

I recommend A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy. Indeed I have recommended it to many humans who come to me thinking they are or want to be "Satanists".

The greatest mistake of modern Satanism was to offer itself as something for the uneducated, undisciplined, and unsophisticated masses - which in effect resulted in its all-too-often becoming just "tantrumism".

Stoicism definitely requires you to get your shit together.

Personally, I found this interview to be a bit dry and obtuse.

Not a knock, but simply an objective observation.

However, for our neophytes who may not be familiar with this material, I would point to these two wiki articles:

These articles are reasonably well written and should point the new practitioner in the right direction.
