Customer Review

on 17 May 2007
This is a useful introduction to Stoic thinking. It sets out some of the basic ideas in easily digestible chunks. However, as the other reviewer notes, if you want the full version then you should go next to the Discourses. The Encheridion gives you a flavour of what makes Stoic thought so attractive and should make you want to learn more. Indeed, if you can't learn something useful and life-enhancing from this, you are probably already dead. As it is, you should be able to see just why Stoic ideas were so dominant in the late Roman empire (and what a shame it was that they were overtaken by Christianity). You will also come to understand that such ideas remain hugely relevant today.
