Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The ne plus ultra of Stoicism, Discourses outline clear-cut principles of right conduct and true thinking, offering secular thinkers a mode of reasoning that dismisses the strictures of absolutism and emotionalism in exchange for a more peaceful and productive life. The Discourses report wide-ranging discussions between Epictetus and his students.

Book News Annotation:

One of first-century Roman Stoic Epictetus' disciples purportedly recorded discussions between him and his students. The informal exchanges range through such topics as friendship, illness, fear, the quest for tranquility, and the futility of anger. Matheson's translation was published by Clarendon Press; its few annotations are interpretive rather than explanatory.
