Discourses by Epictetus is a work that only survived The discourses of Epictetus book to a student named Arrian, who’s credited with transcribing the lessons he learned in Epictetus’ classroom at the beginning of the second century AD.

Arrian wrote in a letter prior to the Discourses’ publishing, “whatever I used to hear him say I wrote down, word Discourses of Epictetus: Book Summary, Key Lessons.

The Discourses of Epictetus are a series of extracts of the teachings of the Stoic philosopher Epictetus written down by Arrian c. There were originally eight books, but only four now remain in their entirety, along with a few fragments of the others.

The opinion of the philosophers, perhaps, seems to some to be a paradox; but still let us examine as well as we can, if it is true that it is possible to do everything both with caution and with confidence.
