    About the Author

    Epictetus

    Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher He was probably born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia present day Pamukkale, Turkey , and lived in Rome until his exile to Nicopolis in northwestern Greece, where he lived most of his life and died His teachings were noted down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses Philosophy, he taught, is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline To Epictetus, all external events are determined by fate, and are thus beyond our control, but we can accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately Individuals, however, are responsible for their own actions which they can examine and control through rigorous self discipline Suffering arises from trying to control what is uncontrollable, or from neglecting what is within our power As part of the universal city that is the universe, human beings have a duty of care to all fellow humans The person who followed these precepts would achieve happiness.

      A little something to read on Thanksgiving Maybe after this, I ll leaf through Seneca, then watch Charlie Brown or something.One of the big three stoics, with the authors being Marcus Aurelius and Seneca Epictetus recieved no formal schooling, and was a slave for most of his life No self pity Instead, independence, fearlessness, and acceptance of death and suffering Self rule and self improvement Forgiveness, acceptance, and understanding Almost resembles some forms of Buddhism In many ways, bot [...]

      Stoicism according to Epictetus, is Don t demand that things happen as you wish, but wish that they happen as they do happen, and you will go on welld If you ever happen to turn your attention to externals, so as to wish to please anyone, be assured that you have ruined your scheme of life.My favorite quote, maybe because it s so personally relevant and so incisive, is, and bear with Epictetus, this one is a bit long winded In every affair consider what precedes and follows, and then undertake i [...]

      I maintain the oldest writings are the absolute best A fantastic collection of 52 maxims 29 seems to be missing , as timeless as they are wise Some quotes 1 Some things are in our control and others are not Work, therefore, to be able to say to every harsh appearance, You are but an appearance, and not absolutely the thing you appear to be 5 Do not be proud of any excellence that is not yours If a horse thinks I am handsome , that is acceptable But if you the owner boasts I have a handsome horse [...]

      Favorable commentary on Epictetus lodges this collection of sayings within a wider, deeper Stoic philosophy In a nutshell, the cosmos operates by natural law that is beyond our control Things in the cosmos are transitory and permanent attachment is not possible The task for the Stoic philosopher, such as Epictetus, is to focus only on those actions that are within one s power to control and to act without attachment This is the law of the cosmos that we know through our rationality, which become [...]

      This short and simple work of stoic philosophy is as valid as when it was first penned two thousand years ago Epictetus started life as a Greek slave, but wound up in Rome His Enchiridion distinguishes sharply between those things we can control and those we cannot Some things are in our control and others not Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and, in one wo [...]

      Epictetus is a less popular stoic than Seneca and Marcus Aurelius, and I didn t read his works for a long time This book was my first introduction to his wisdom, and while Seneca may be clearer in his writing, there are certain gems that Epictetus brings to the table that even Seneca and M.Aurelius aren t able to produce Seneca puts great emphasis on the shortness of life, tranquility, and being above suffering Marcus Aurelius looks at the bigger picture, and the idea that we don t have complete [...]

      If anyone tells you that a certain person speaks ill of you, do not make excuses about what is said of you but answer, He was ignorant of my other faults, else he would not have mentioned these alone This philosophical text is a collection of 52 quotes or sayings or advice by Epictetus It has been collected by one of his students and is presented as almost a proto handbook style format This handbook is a wealth of good information and I feel I was very impressed with it overall Some of the advic [...]

      As much a classic work of philosophy, as it is a treatise on how to live as a stoic , the Enchiridion is dope Because this is essentially a list of rules that is the length of an extended essay, I ll be rereading it probably multiple times to digest it further Sure, there are some principles I don t subscribe to, but there is a lot of good stuff in this to mull over I think it s interesting that something that was written than 1,880 years ago can still be applicable to life today, as it was bac [...]

      Nothing that most people don t know Really I m not trying to appear brilliant I gave 2 stars because the ideas are expressed in a lovely, straightforward prose The problem I have with this work is that Epictetus, it seems to this non classicist, does not give value to responsibility of obligation For example, I sense that if someone was unhappy in a marriage, Epictetus would tell that someone to leave the marriage instead of working it out I also sense he did not put value in emotions of pleasur [...]

      The opening line reads like a secular mantra Some things are in our control and others not Things in our control are opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever are our own actions Things not in our control are body, property, reputation, command, and in one word, whatever are not our actions.Further along, what to do with this realization Work, therefore, to be able to say to every harsh appearance, You are but an appearance, and not absolutely the thing you appear to be And th [...]

      Don t just say you have read books Show that through them you have learned to think better, to be a discriminating and reflective person Books are the training weights of the mind They are very helpful, but it would be a bad mistake to suppose that one has made progress simply by having internalized their contents.

      There isn t much here that one could take issue with Epictetus pithy take on morals and ethics is not that far removed from that of the New Testament.

      I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.Though giving a good description of stoicism, there are some nuggets of advice that are pretty difficult to follow This includes the comparison of a family to a pot There are some good maxims that society nowadays would be worth living by, including 5, 8 and 30, among others, but for the most part, it would be pretty difficult to follow all of Epictetus s advice.

      Heavy but beautiful I still prefer Meditations by Marcus Aurelius as far as Stoics philosophical mind fucks go but I will definitely be re listening to this one Also, it cracks me up how funny these grumpy sounding philosophers from a bazillion years ago can be I mean it s kinda dumb to assume they wouldn t be funny, seeing as how insightful they are but it was still a delight.

      Happiness, the effect of virtue, is the mark which God has set up for us to aim at Our missing it is no work of His nor so properly anything real, as a mere negative and failure of our own.
