How much free will do you really have? Here is the stoics’ theory on the concept of free will. According to the stoic philosophers, free will is simply a voluntary accommodation to what is inevitable. Meaning, life will happen as it is meant to happen, and your free will lies in your willingness to move along with it.
Let me begin by telling you what stoicism is not. It is not a philosophy to help you live a life full of riches. And by that, I mean a life full of material possessions. Although following the stoic teachings can help you become financially successful ( Seneca, a prominent stoic philosopher became incredibly wealthy) that is not the goal of stoicism.
