Salvete eis qui legant -
Stoicism is coherent, I would say. It accords with how life is. It is a project, not a belief system. Its doctrines have survived in a paucity of reporting and original texts, and stand or fail in our application of them and in our consciences. To live according to Nature is a project, a quest, a continuous goal. In that regard, it parallels religious orientations, but it is not a religion; rather, an attitude and an empiricism.
