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.
I am a steering committee member of Modern Stoicism, which is dedicated to studying the benefits of Stoicism and sharing it with people around the world. In 2022 I joined the board of The Stoic Fellowship, a nonprofit that builds, fosters, and connects communities of Stoics around the world. I am also co-founder, along with Eve Riches, of the new nonprofit Stoicare, which aims to share Stoicism with everyone who cares about people and the planet.
My latest book is Journal Like a Stoic: A 90-Day Stoicism Program to Live with Greater Acceptance, Less Judgment, and Deeper Intentionality.
