Although he was born into slavery and endured a permanent physical
disability, Epictetus (ca. 50-ca. 130 AD) maintained that all
people are free to control their lives and to live in harmony with
nature. We will always be happy, he argued, if we learn to desire
that things should be exactly as they are. After attaining his
freedom, Epictetus spent his entire career teaching philosophy and
advising a daily regimen of self-examination. His pupil Arrianus
later collected and published the master's lecture notes; the
Enchiridion, or Manual, is a distillation of Epictetus' teachings
and an instructional manual for a tranquil life. Full of practical
advice, this work offers guidelines for those seeking contentment
as well as for those who have already made some progress in that
direction. Translated by George Long.
