“About things that are in our power and things that are not in our powerEpictète’s Discourses were the most read and influential of all the writings of Stoic philosophy, from antiquity to the present.They define the basis of the ethical principles of Stoicism in a form designed to help people put them into practice and use them as the basis for leading a good human life.Epictète was a teacher and a freed slave, whose speeches have a lively informality, animated by anecdotes and dialogueEnergetic, direct, and difficult, their central message is that the basis of happiness is ours, and that we all have the capacity, through careful reflection and hard work, to achieve this goal.They speak eloquently for modern readers seeking meaning in their own livesThis is the only modern complete translation of the Discourse, with the manual of key themes, and survive fragmentsRobin Dur’s accurate and accessible translation is accompanied by Christopher Gill’s full introduction and full notesON SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the worldEach affordable volume reflects Oxford’s commitment to studies, providing the most accurate text, plus a host of other useful functions, including experts in introductions by major authorities, useful notes to clarify the text, updated bibliographies for further study, and many more
