Book Summary:

The Enchiridion, or Handbook was written by a student of Epictetus in the 2nd century. It is a short guide to ethical living, and its focus is more practical than the metaphysical treatises of earlier Greek philosophers. It assumes that "some things are up to us and some are not up to us," and instructs the reader how to deal well with what life brings. It remained an important handbook for Christians and pagans alike for many centuries.

Book Summary:

Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. He was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia and lived in Rome until his banishment, when he went to Nicopolis in northwestern Greece for the rest of his life. His teachings were written down and published by his pupil Arrian in his Discourses and Enchiridion.Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are beyond our control; we should accept calmly and dispassionately whatever happens. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline.
