What Happens When Modern Society Rebrands an Ancient Philosophy?

Stoicism is a belief protected under the Equality Act; Over the last 10 years, Stoicism has gone from a topic confined to philosophy lectures to one consumed by the masses. Massimo Pigliucci, expert for our Stoicism course, is quoted at length in @VICE:
https://www.vice.com/en/article/xgxvmw/the-revival-of-stoicism

Everyone from Silicon Valley billionaires to self-help enthusiasts is repurposing Stoicism for our modern age, with results that are good, bad, and highly indifferent.

Why do have to keep signing in to Wondrium over and over? This is getting old and very inconvenient.
A warning to people on Great Courses Plus. I don't know if you'll have my experience, but Great Courses Plus is now "Wondrium." Once it changed over to "Wondrium," my password was unrecognized and my account became inaccessible. Clicking on "Forgot email or password" only sent me to an ad for "Wondrium." I emailed "Wondrium," and was sent a link to a legitimate password reset, but the new password only lasted a few hours. Let's hope that "Wondrium" fixes this soon, as Great Courses Plus was a wonderful resource.
A Maya book is referred to as a codex (plural: codices ). The codices were painted onto a paper made of bark from the fig tree and folded out like an accordion. Unfortunately, zealous Spanish priests destroyed most of these codices during the conquest and colonial era and today only four examples survive.
Hey, I am preparing someone for their GED. I took two years of A.P. Biology in high school so I missed a lot about physics, chemistry, and general science. I was wondering if anyone familiar with the GED knew what courses would be good. I was startled by how long the joy of science is, but I don't need the biology or history of science lectures. Right now, I am planning to search for the terms in the GED guide-books and see what lectures contain them.
Hi, I can't find the Wondrium app on Google play for use on my Sprint Galaxy Tab A. And please fix the app so it can stay locked in portrait or landscape mode, the app I had (The Great Courses Plus app) always auto rotated regardless of the tablet's setting. The new app works fine on my Samsung A50 but it hard to watch on such a small screen. Thank you.
Where's my "continue watching" list? I literally have to use the search to find a course I am currently watching... super annoying.
Learn to play the piano with Prof. Pike is NOT for beginners. I bought this course as a refresher and to learn theory(which I had never learned). A person with no musical background would find this very difficult - a lot of new (for me) terminology not that well explained. There should be fewer lessons with more emphasis on basics. The film of Ms. Pike playing the piano, as far as finger placement on the keys, is not clear enough ..should be more close ups. Of courses you can go over the lessons as many times as you want to enforce new concepts....but this course is LEARN to play the piano. Perhaps fewer concepts with more in depth examples would be helpful. All in all a disappointment.
What happened to Great Courses Plus? I just paid for a three-month plan on my membership. What happens to my $32.00 membership. Hopefully, you will honor my payment, if not I will have to cancel my membership. I live on Social Security and I do not have any more money to pay????!!!!!!
So you've changed your name. When are you going to improve your service?
I get it. There is an old economic theory called Zero Based Accounting. In it every part of the business has to so why they should be part of an business. So people in management decide to show they have value to change the name of Great Courses Plus to Wonderium Where did you get that title ? My advice is quit watching movies from the 80's ?
I saw nothing wrong with the name Great Courses Plus. It told you exactly what you wanted to find. The new name Wonderium sounds like a bad 80's movie. If something isn't broken don't fix it.
