AudioStoa 3

AudioStoa 3 continues our series of readings of Epictetus' Discourses. This week's program features a short introduction to the history of the philosophical criticism of traditional Greek religion as well as the emergence of a certain consciousness of philosophy as a "divine enterprise" before reading from Epictetus' Disc. I.3: "How a man should proceed from the principle of God being the father of all to the rest". There is some clipping in the audio due to hardware issues, for which I apologize. You may download the episode here.

AudioStoa 2

AudioStoa 2 continues the exploration of Epictetus' Discourses. This week, I introduce Disc. I.2, "How a man on every occasion can maintain his proper character" in the context of last week's reading, Disc. I.1, which concerned the vital distinction between those things which are within our control and those which are outside of our control. You may download the episode here.

[Update: There was a problem with the original enclosure webhosting I used. Everything should be operational now. Thanks to the mysterious "Mr. X" who informed me of the problem.]
