Epictetus (55 - 1135 AD) the Enchiridion is a short text that outlines his main philosophy of life - the world is rationally ordered, such that, humankind can make sense of the world, the order of which can be disclosed through logic and once mastered can secure a fulling, happy life.
This course is a hands-on discussion of key, accessible, relevant passages from the Enchiridion, which will be jointly negotiated with students, from which each student will draw life lessons that can be immediately, and easily applied to their own lives.
