Dimensions: 11.0in. x 8.5in. x 0.2in.GREEK CLASSICSThe Enchiridion or Manual of EpictetusA Selection from the Discourses of Epictetus with the EncheiridionTranslated by George LongThe Enchiridion or Manual 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 similar to the Discourses of Epictetus, it is not a summary of the Discourses but rather a compilation of practical precepts. Eschewing metaphysics, Arrian focused his attention on Epictetuss work applying philosophy in daily life. The primary theme is that one should accept what happens. However, some things are up to us and some are not up to us and we must act accordingly, taking responsibility for planning and enacting what we can with virtue without becoming upset or disheartened by obstacles and reverses beyond our control. For many centuries, the Enchiridion maintained its authority both with Christians and Pagans. Two Christian writersNilus and an anonymous contemporarywrote paraphrases of it in the early 5th century and Simplicius of Cilicia wrote a commentary upon it in the 6th. The work was first published in Latin translation by Poliziano in Rome in 1493; Beroaldus published another edition in Bologna in 1496. The original Greek was first published in Venice with the Simpliciuss commentary in 1528 and an English translation appeared as early as 1567. The book was a common school text in Scotland during the Scottish Enlightenment. Adam Smith had a 1670 edition in his library, acquired as a schoolboy. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
