The Discourses of Epictetus, Gill, Christopher (editor)
1 Gill, Christopher (editor) The Discourses of Epictetus
London Everyman 1995 0460873121 / 9780460873123 Paperback Very Good 
"Muncie Anderson" written in ink on inside cover page. ; Translation revised by Robin Hard

Yet the stress on endurance, self-restraint and the power of the will to withstand calamity can often seem coldhearted. It is Epictetus, a lame former slave exiled by the Emperor Domitian, who offers by far the most positive and humane version of Stoic ideals. The Discourses, assembled by his pupil Arrian, catch him in action, publicly setting out his views on ethical dilemmas. Committed to communicating with the widest possible audience, Epictetus uses humor, imaginary conversations and homely comparisons to put his message across. The result is a perfect summary of 'the Roman virtues' —the brotherhood of man, universal justice, calm indifference in the face pain—which have proved so influential throughout Western history.
