Unlike his predecessors, Epictetus (c. CE), who grew up as a slave, taught Stoicism not for the select few but for the many. A student, the historian Arrian, recorded Epictetus's lectures and, in the Encheiridion, a handbook, summarized his thought.   The term enchiridion in Latin connotes an essential handbook summing up a particular matter or subject. So it is with the well-regarded enchiridion of Epictetus, which successfully expresses the most important principles of Stoicism into this small text/5(69).

I personally prefer the discourse as it fleshes out Epictetus' message more fully but the Enchiridion is a good start if you just want an introduction to Epictetus' views.4/5(35).   Get the book on Amazon: The Discourses of Epictetus - UPDATE: For those of you that have asked me for the images from my videos, I have.
