Enchiridion with a Selection from the Discourses Translated by George Long with an Introduction by T W Rolleston Book Description :

Greek-speaking philosopher Epictetus was born into slavery around 55 AD at Hierapolis in the ancient Kingdom of Phrygia, which today is located in the city of Pamukkale, Turkey. He lived in Rome until his banishment from the city, after which he would spend the rest of his life in the Northwestern Greek city of Nicopolis. Epictetus was one of the most prominent of the stoic philosophers. Stoicism was the school of philosophy that taught detachment from one's emotions so that truth may be arrived at through reason. To the stoic this detachment allows the natural law of the universe to reveal itself allowing harmony with the world to be achieved. This philosophy is exemplified in Epictetus' most famous work, the "Enchiridion," which serves as a manual for the everyday practice of the philosophy. Compiled by Epictetus' student Arrian, the "Enchiridion" or "Handbook" provides a simple practical philosophy which at its heart emphasizes the acceptance of one's circumstances in order to achieve happiness in life. A more detailed examination of the philosophy can be found within the discourses of Epictetus, of which a representative selection are presented here in this volume. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, follows the translation of George Long, and includes an introduction by T. W. Rolleston.

The Enchiridion or Handbook of Epictetus is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian, a 2nd-century disciple of the Greek philosopher Epictetus. Although the content is mostly derived from the Discourses of Epictetus, it is not a summary of the Discourses but rather a compilation of practical precepts. Eschewing metaphysics, Arrian focuses his attention on Epictetus's work applying philosophy to daily life. The book is thus a manual to show the way to achieve mental freedom and happiness in all circumstances.

The Enchiridion Book Description :

The Enchiridion: The Handbook of Epictetus by Epictetus and translated by Thomas W. Higginson with an Introduction by Albert Salomon . The Enchiridion or Handbook of Epictetus is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice compiled by Arrian, a 2nd-century disciple of the Greek philosopher Epictetus. There are things which are within our power, and there are things which are beyond our power. Within our power are opinion, aim, desire, aversion, and, in one word, whatever affairs are our own. Beyond our power are body, property, reputation, office, and, in one word, whatever are not properly our own affairs. The little book by Epictetus called Enchiridion or "manual" has played a disproportionately large role in the rise of modern attitudes and modern philosophy. As soon as it had been translated into the vernacular languages, it became a bestseller among independent intellectuals, among anti-Christian thinkers, and among philosophers of a subjective cast. Montaigne had a copy of the Enchiridion among his books. Pascal violently rejected the megalomaniac pride of the Stoic philosopher. Frederick the Great carried the book with him on all campaigns. It was a source of inspiration and encouragement to Anthony, Earl of Shaftesbury, in the serious illness which ended only in his death; many pages of his diaries contain passages copied from the Enchiridion. It has been studied and widely quoted by Scottish philosophers like Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson who valued Stoic moral philosophy for its reconciliation of social dependency and personal independence.
