A. A. Long (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Offers detailed analysis of two of Epictetus’ Discourses: ’On rationality as self‐studying’, and ’On lapsing from integrity’. Epictetus explains the importance of making correct use of mental impressions, criticizes Epicurus, outlines the essentials of Stoic value theory, contrasts external power with self‐mastery, treats loss of integrity as supremely damaging to its former owner, and advocates internal dialogue as the essential resource for monitoring experience.

Keywords:   Epictetus, Epicurus, impressions, integrity, internal dialogue, rationality, self‐mastery, Stoicism, value theory
