Discourses and Selected Writings

by: Epictetus

The book is a compilation of teachings and philosophical thoughts by the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, focusing on ethics, personal freedom, and the art of living. It includes his Discourses, which are informal lectures, the Enchiridion, a concise manual on how Stoic philosophy can be applied to daily life, and fragments of his lost works.

Key points:

1. Control Dichotomy: Epictetus stresses understanding what we can and can't control. Our reactions and desires are controllable, while external events aren't. Focusing on controllable aspects brings peace.
