The Stoic and Epicurean philosophers; the complete extant writings of Epicurus, Epictetus, Lucretius [and] Marcus Aurelius by Whitney J Oates( Book )

6 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Dust Jacket: In the writings of Epicurus, Epictetus, Lucretius and Marcus Aurelius, Greek and Roman philosophy comes into its fullest flowering. The advocates of the principles of virtue and pleasure are brought together into a single inexpensive volume for the first time; hitherto their works were obtainable only in separate, expensive editions. The four thinkers here represented have been brilliantly translated by Cyril Bailey, H.A.J. Munro, P.E. Matheson and George Long. In addition, Cleanthes' famous poem Hymn to Zeus and Matthew Arnold's Essay on Marcus Aurelius are included

The discourses of Epictetus by Epictetus( Book )

6 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yet the stress on endurance, self—restraint and power of the will to withstand calamity can often seem coldhearted. It is Epictetus, a lame former slave exiled by the Emperor Domitian, who offers by far the most positive and humane version of stoic ideals. The Discourses, assembled by his pupil Arrian, catch him in action, publicly setting out his views on ethical dilemmas. -- Amazon
