Synopsis

This audio book contains three of the most notable works on Stoic philosophy: The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, Seneca's On the Shortness of Life, and The Enchiridion of Epictetus.

Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus are known as the founding fathers of Stoic philosophy. All three of these men believed that the path to eudaimonia (happiness, or blessedness) for humans is found in accepting the moment as it presents itself, by not allowing oneself to be controlled by the desire for pleasure or fear of pain, by using one's mind to understand the world and to do one's part in nature's plan, and by working together and treating others fairly and justly. They argued that virtue is the only good.
