   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 second language development. Here at Living in Agreement, I apply my lifelong interest in human nature to living a philosophical life.

In 2021 I joined the Modern Stoicism team, which is dedicated to studying the benefits of Stoicism and sharing it with people around the world.
