Summary
Born a slave, the Roman Stoic philosopher Epictetus (c. 55-135 AD) taught that mental freedom is supreme, since it can liberate one anywhere, even in a prison. In this book, A.A. Long - one of the world's leading authorities on Stoicism and a pioneer in its remarkable contemporary revival - provides a new edition of Epictetus's celebrated guide to the Stoic philosophy of life (the Encheiridion) along with a selection of related reflections in his Discourses
