Summary
Epictetus, a Greek stoic and freed slave, ran a thriving philosophy school in Nicopolis in the early second century AD. 'The Discourses' argue that happiness lies in learning to perceive exactly what is in our power to change and what is not, and in embracing our fate to live in harmony with god and nature
