Introducing Ubuntu Stoicism

By: Tiisetso Maloma

Virtues and Philosophies of Seneca, Mandela, African Proverbs and Snoop Dogg.

This book narrates practical philosophies and virtues the ancients used as resilience tools against hardships. They are very much applicable to today’s times.

We all struggle to get a grip on joy, anxiety, productivity and resilience, from time to time.

Today thousands around the world have found solace and utility in the ancient Greek philosophy of Stoicism against these struggles: sportsmen, coaches, politicians and businessmen and artists.

In Africa they use the ancient philosophy of Ubuntu and its proverbs to reinforce sanity, motivation, humility, inspiration, meaning, and cautionary discipline.

In this book, the author meditates on the combination of the two ancient philosophies as a pathway to getting a healthy grip on joy, anxiety and productivity.

To the author, Stoicism enshrines humility (Ubuntu) for the self, others, goals, joy and productivity.

Tiisetso first introduced his meditative writings on Stoicism in his 4th book called ‘The Anxious Entrepreneur’ in 2016.

Later on, he coined the phrase ‘Ubuntu Stoicism’ as a creative and meditative endeavour to get a grip on joy, productivity and anxieties.

Introducing Ubuntu Stoicism does not only borrow virtues from ancient titans (Seneca, Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus) and African proverbs.

It also borrows from modern icons outside Stoicism: the likes of Nelson Mandela and the rapper Snoop Dogg.
