Editorial Reviews

Review


"Will be most welcome to all serious scholars of the slave turned Stoic student turned Stoic teacher. ... [Long's] contributions...help to ensure that Epictetus will continue to enjoy an active 'afterlife'."--Ancient Philosophy


"With deft sensitivity to how Epictetus' pedagogic concerns influence what he says in different contexts.... Long's focus on questions of how one might live as a philosopher keeps his book accessible and engaging throughout, as do the extensive quotations from Epictetus' discourses in Long's own lively translations."--Choice


"A. A. Long's splendid Epictetus: A Stoic and Socratic Guide to Life...could be used successfully in everything from an introductory survey-course on Greek philosophy to a graduate seminar on Stoicism."--Wolfgang Mann, Note Dame Philosophical Reviews


"The first monograph for 34 years devoted to that most readable and read of all Stoics.... This is an exemplary work of intellectual history: it has never taken much to see that Epictetus is a witty, direct, and humane teacher of an interesting philosophy; it is good to have a study which explains something of what he (as opposed merely to it) is about."--Greece & Rome


"[A] splendidly accessible study...Long's book offers expert and lucid guidance on every aspect of Epictetus' philosophy and his various teaching strategies, illustrated by numerous excerpts from the Discourses. It is written in a manner that is both calmly accepting of Epictetus' peculiarities and, in the proper sense, philosophical."--Times Literary Supplement
