    Epictetus, (born ad 55, probably at Hierapolis, Phrygia [now Pamukkale, Turkey]—died c. , Nicopolis, Epirus [Greece]), Greek philosopher associated with the Stoics, remembered for the religious tone of his teachings, which commended him to numerous early Christian thinkers.. His original name is not known; epiktētos is the Greek word meaning “acquired.”. Epictetus, The Morals of (c. 60), consisting of his ‘Manual’ and ‘Discourses,’ are the sole writings preserved to our age, through the assiduity of his pupil Arrian. Published in the early second century, they afford our only record of the doctrines of the greatest of the Stoics. The ‘Manual,’ still a favorite with all thoughtful readers, is a guide to right living.

    No writings of Epictetus himself are really known. His discourses were transcribed and compiled by his pupil Arrian (author of the Anabasis Alexandri). The main work is The Discourses, four books of which have been preserved (out of an original eight). Arrian also compiled a popular digest, entitled the Enchiridion, or Handbook. In a preface to. Besides numerous articles, he co-authored the book, In Love and War, with his wife, Sybil (Harper and Row, ), now in its second revised and updated edition (Naval Institute Press, ). NBC produced a dramatized version of this book which appeared in , starring James Wood and Jane Alexander.

    I discovered Epictetus following a library checkout of a book on tape by Tom Wolfe titled "A Man in Full" ()- a story about two men who met by chance in Atlanta and whose lives changed drastically and positively as one (an escaped convict) reluctantly taught the other (who was in his own personal crisis) the power of what he learned in prison from the teachings of Epictetus. texts All Books All Texts latest This Just In Smithsonian Libraries FEDLINK (US) Genealogy Lincoln Collection.
