How Deep the Rabbit Hole Goes': The Alt-Right's Infatuation With Stoic Philosophy

How Deep the Rabbit Hole Goes': The Alt-Right's Infatuation With Stoic Philosophy

Dr. Donna Zuckerberg, Founder and Editor in Chief of Eidolon

April 23, 2019

Colony Ballroom, Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park MD

 

Stoicism and the Alt-Right may seem to be an unlikely pairing: the far-right internet is motivated by irrational hatred and rage, traits that are fundamentally incompatible with Stoic thought.

In this lecture, Donna Zuckerberg will explore the Red Pill community's odd fascination with this ancient philosophy and the role classical antiquity plays in far-right online discourse.
