Stoic reading

I am reading Martha Nussbaum’s The Therapy of Desire, partly for my own benefit, and partly for inspiration for scenes in my novel where I show Posidonius practising stoicism, rather than just talking about it.

Although I’ve read Seneca, Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus, I’ve not done much reading on the Stoics. In fact until recently, I only had two such books in my library: John Sellars’ Stoicismand Lawrence C Becker’s A New StoicismWith my interest piqued by the Exeter Stoicism project I’m aiming to widen my stoic reading, and I’m compiling a booklist to start on after I’ve finished Nussbaum.

I’ve downloaded Rohan Healys From Geeks to Geeksand the other book I’m adding to the list is John Sellars’ The Art of Living.  If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know in a comment.
