Audio series: Epictetus’ Enchiridion

Here is the latest — and last! — complete audio commentary series from my Stoic Meditations, dedicated to Epictetus’ Enchiridion. This is one of the most important texts of ancient Stoicism, a very short but very powerful guide to a life worth living. I decided to conclude my long running Stoic Meditations series (5 years, 1094 episodes, over 8 million downloads) with Epictetus because he has been a major influence on my own philosophical path. I hope he will guide you as well.

Some things are up to us, while others are not. Up to us are opinion, motivation, desire, aversion, and, in a word, whatever is of our own doing; not up to us are our body, our property, reputation, office, and, in a word, whatever is not of our own doing.

The audio commentary runs for 21 episodes.

  1. I have enjoyed your podcast very much!
    The links just take me to all your episodes. Is there a way to go to a specific one? I would like to go through some other books and follow along with you!

    Thanks for all you do! You are my Epictetus!!!!!

    1. Thanks for the kind words. If you click on one of the individual links listed within a given page (e.g., those under Epictetus’ Enchiridion) the very top episode is the one you want. But yes, the page also lists all the others, which is confusing.
