The AnkiDroid Collection (Part 4) – Stoicism, the Druze People & Agrarian Societies

Today continuing with the Ankidroid additions related to Science, History and Philosophy. You can find more information about Ankidroid in my post – Learning a Second Language and Ankidroid.

Stoicism

A school of Hellenistic philosophy about personal ethics informed by its system of logic and views on the natural world. The one only thing one should care about is that they meet their moral obligations. Virtue is its own reward. We do not need need wealth or sexual gratification.

Marcus Aurelius – ruler of the Roman Empire wrote a book called Meditations laying out the philosophy before it was even coined. He is the only ruler in the western tradition who remotely resembled Plato’s philosopher King.

2. The Druze People

An Arabic speaking esoteric-enthnoreligious group originating in Western Asia who self-identify as Unitarians (An Abrahamic monotheistic syncretic religion).

Jethro of Midian is considered as an ancestor of the people on the Mountain of Druze and he is revered as a spiritual prophet and founder.

3. Agrarian Societies

A community whose economy is based on maintaining crops and farmlands. Its main means of production is the cultivation of lands. It was an advancement on the Hunter-Gatherer form of living.

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand
