   About Brittany Polat

I strongly believe that anyone who is willing to reflect carefully on life can make progress toward inner peace and contentment. That's why I write about Stoic moral psychology and philosophy. My Ph.D. is in applied linguistics, where I studied the psychology underlying second language development. Here at Living in Agreement, I apply my lifelong interest in human nature to the discourse and practice of inner excellence.
