This chapter presents synthesis of the discussions on the Stoic system in this volume. These include what is means to be a Stoic, theory of indifferents, theory of determinism, theory of ethics, and misconceptions about Stoicism. It concludes by saying that the study of Stoicism provides all sorts of small phrases and images that are attractive and easily taken away. One can learn from the interconnectedness of the whole system, even when one can no longer support or embrace the system as a whole.
