Discussion on Epictetus's Enchiridion (Pt. 1)
"What will we be discussing?" We will spend the meeting discussing Epictetus's Enchiridion (a.k.a. his 'Manual') Ch. 1-28 only (reserving the rest for a later date). "What edition should I read?" To stay on the same page (literally), I'd recommend that we adopt the Oxford World Classics edition (trans. Robin Hard): https://global.oup.com/academic/product/discourses-fragments-handbook-9780199595181?cc=us&lang=en& If you're strapped for cash, you have two options: 1) Stick with the William Abbot Oldfather translation in the public domain: https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Epictetus,_the_Discourses_as_reported_by_Arrian,_the_Manual,_and_Fragments/Manual 2) Message me with your email address and I'll share a scanned version of our reading with you. Of course, feel free to bring as many editions as you'd like and and we can compare them. "How should I prepare?" Please read as much as you can. Choose passages that you found particularly provocative, insightful, or confusing and we will take turns sharing those portions of the reading with each other.
