Here is a fun chat (about 46′) I have had with my friend and colleague Brian Johnson, all about one of our favorite books, Epictetus’ Enchiridion, or the manual for a good life. It is part of a series of podcasts produced by the highly recommended Mouse Books, which you can check here.
A bit about the co-hosts: Brian Johnson is an Associate Professor at Fordham University and the author of The Role Ethics of Epictetus: Stoicism in Ordinary Life. Brian is currently working on a comprehensive re-translation of Epictetus’ works. Massimo Pigliucci is a Professor at the City University of New York and author most recently of A Field Guide to a Happy Life: 53 Brief Lessons for Living, which just happens to be a rewrite and update of the Enchiridion.
