Allegory and Myth in Stoicism

In this chapter I offer a psychoanalytic reading of the Stoics’ obsession with traditional Greek myths, rituals, and cultic iconography. I would write this differently if I were to do it again today: more attention to philosophy of religion, and a less reductive use of psychoanalytic theory. Jeffrey Kripal sets a great example of how to combine the two.
