Epictetus was a great stoic philosopher. He used to teach stoicism in Rome. Epictetus’ quotes are a true guide to stoicism philosophy. This video digs deep into the book Discourses of Epictetus. This book contains stoic philosophy teachings by Epictetus to his students.

The famous Stoic Epictetus books were compiled by his student Flavius Arrian based on Epictetus’ lessons to his students and their earnest discussions.

Who is Epictetus? And what are his Stoic teachings and Stoic philosophy? Mr. Smart has explained in detail in this video which is basically Epictetus’ Discourses summary.

Epictetus’ Discourses is a compilation of the golden sayings of Epictetus. In fact, ethics and morality are the cornerstones of Epictetus’ teachings. He was concerned with practice, not theory.

The book Discourses is Epictetus’ philosophy summary and is deeply rooted in common sense and experience which continue to positively influence people’s life till today. Often repeated themes in Discourses are:

00:00 Who is Epictetus?
03:38 The Discourses
04:38 Be Proactive
06:42 Respect the Process and Timing
08:14 Focus on what is in your control
09:58 The Three Topoi
12:37 Choose your friends very carefully

Stoicism is a complete guide to controlling and managing the anger. Epictetus and Stoicism are the same to me. That’s who was Epictetus.

Epictetus’ stoic philosophy has three areas of study and discipline, which are: Desires, Action and Assent. Epictetus as a Greek Philosopher warns his students against associating themselves with people who are leading a negligent life.
