For this Reading Response, you will explore some Hellenistic thought. Read “Some Stoic Ideas” found here http://www.csun.edu/~hcfll004/stoicquo.html  and Epicurus’s “Principle Doctrines” found here:  http://classics.mit.edu/Epicurus/princdoc.html

Although they represent different philosophies, what common concerns do they address? How do these concerns reflect the social changes that accompanied the rise of Hellenism? How do these line up with the teaching of other cultures, such as Confucianism and Buddhism?

**The link to the Stoicism reading should work if you cut and paste it. If that does not work, you can find the document here:   https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/ancient/asbook08.asp  in the Philosophy section under “Stoic Source Texts” in the Stoicism section
