I find the concept of oikeiosis to be of great importance in my own practise of Stoicism . Five years ago when I started to learn about Stoicism I found many of the concepts persuasive , unfortunately coming from scientific background I could not buy into the metaphysics . When I came across the concept of oikeiosis it allowed to rethink Stoicism and align it with my scientific view point , oikeiosis enabled me to take Stoicism seriously . Once I started to think in terms of oikeiosis regularly I noticed a psychological benefit , at 61 years of age rekindling the idea I could continue to develop was reinvigorating . Thank you discussing Chris Gill's book , looking forward to the next post .
