Publisher's Description

A new translation of the influential teachings of the great Stoic philosopher

DESPITE BEING BORN into slavery, Greco-Roman philosopher Epictetus became one of the most influential thinkers of his time. Discourses and Selected Writings is a transcribed collection of informal lectures given by the philosopher around AD 108. A gateway into the life and mind of a great intellectual, it is also an important example of the usage of Koine or ?common? Greek, an ancestor to Standard Modern Greek.

Author Bio

Epictetus (c. AD 55–135) was born into slavery in Anatolia (modern Turkey) but gained his freedom and moved to the coast of Greece, where he opened a school of philosophy.

Robert Dobbin is the author of Epictetus Discourses: Book One as well as articles on Virgil, Plato, and Pythagoras.
