This chapter argues, using the example of Epictetus, that ancient moral psychology can still be very good to think with because it addresses problems that human beings of any time or place encounter. Yet, Epictetus is embedded in his own time and place and Stoic doctrines. Thus, all his ideas should not be accepted as completely applicable to ourselves.
