Epictetus was a Greek Stoic philosopher. This short ´´handbook´´, which was actually written down by one of his pupils, is a guide to daily living. It has been read by countless people over the centuries because of its sensibility and its easy application to daily living. Unlike some of his forefathers in philosophy, like Plato and Aristotle, he focuses on how to practically apply oneself on a philosophical level. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Roberts.

The little book by Epictetus called Enchiridion or Manual has played a disproportionately large role in the rise of modern attitudes and modern philosophy. As soon as it had been translated into the vernacular languages, it became a best seller among independent intellectuals, among anti-Christian thinkers, and among philosophers of a subjective cast. Montaigne had a copy of the Enchiridion among his books. Pascal violently rejected the megalomaniac pride of the Stoic philosopher. Frederick the Great carried the book with him on all campaigns. It was a source of inspiration and encouragement to Anthony, Earl of Shaftesbury, in the serious illness which ended only in his death; many pages of his diaries contain passages copied from the Enchiridion. It has been studied and widely quoted by Scottish philosophers like Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson who valued Stoic moral philosophy for its reconciliation of social dependency and personal independence. 1.

This concise, 75-minute book gets right down to the basics about the law of attraction without all the fill found in most books on the topic: such as examples of people who used these natural principles to become rich and famous, or stories about the author´s successes using these methods. All of us have created our present reality with these natural laws of attraction, and in this book the author suggests ways to improve what we already have. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne E.
