9781605069753: Epictetus: The Enchiridion (Forgotten Books)

The Enchiridion, or Handbook of Epictetus, was written in c. 135 A.D. The Handbook is a guide to daily life. Unlike some of his forefathers in Greek philosophy (i.e. Plato and the other metaphysicists), Epictetus focuses his attention on how to practically apply oneself on a philosophical level. The primary theme in this short work is that one should expect what will happen and wish it to happen so. (Quote from wikipedia.org)

About the Author

Epictetus (ca. 55 - ca. 135)
Epictetus (ca. 55-ca. 135) 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. The name given by his parents, if one was given, is not known-the word epiktetos in Greek simply means "acquired." (Quote from wikipedia.org)
