Let's see if we can finish our ongoing discussion of one of the crucial texts of Stoicism, Epictetus' Enchiridion, or Handbook. It is an extraordinary summary of the teachings of the Stoic sage, compiled by his famous student, Arrian of Nichomedia.

Last time we covered up to section 41, so we will resume from section 42. I will be using the Oxford Classics edition, with a translation by Robin Hard (here: https://www.indiebound.org/book/9780199595181), but there are several free online versions (like this one: http://classics.mit.edu/Epictetus/epicench.html)
