The Dunyain philosophy posted 03 June 2008 in Author Q & AThe Dunyain philosophy by Athjeari, Peralogue

Mr. Bakker and anyone else with insight,

I have been wondering for a long time whether or not you have taken influence for the Dunyain philosophy from the Stoics. There are several parallels that exist such as the "worshipping" of Logos. The idea of controlling emotions and not succumbing to passions. Even the concept of Before and After was believed by Stoics in the concept of the Theory of Causal Determinism.

I am just wondering because I have been studying Stoicism as of late and I am truly intrigued by the concepts. If you have any more insight on the topic I'd love to hear about it, or any other types of philosophical theories/beliefs you used while writing your books. (I am a Speech COMM student, but we discuss philosophy quite a lot especially Ancient Greek philosophy) I'm just interested on the concepts that influenced your writing I guess. view post
