I am Donald Robertson, cognitive therapist, founding member of the Modern Stoicism organization, and author of How to Think Like a Roman Emperor: The Stoic Philosophy of Marcus Aurelius. Ask me anything!
I'm currently visiting Vienna and nearby Carnuntum, the remains of the Roman legionary fortress where Marcus Aurelius stationed himself during some of the First Marcomannic War and wrote part of The Meditations. I'm here in Austria answering questions on 16th March, the day before the anniversary of Marcus' death (reputedly) at Vienna. My special areas of interest are Stoic philosophy and cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy (CBT), especially the relationship between them. I'm the author of six books and (lots of) articles on ancient philosophy and modern psychotherapy.
