Star Wars and the Stoics

Stoic philosophy, which traces its roots to 3rd century, B.C., Greece, has much in common with some of the tenets of the Force in the Star Wars franchise. Several books have been written on the subject of Star Wars and philosophy, including  2005’s Star Wars and Philosophy, which contains a contribution on Stoicism from Creighton University philosophy professor William O. Stephens, Ph.D. Click here to read more about Stephens and the ancient philosophy.
