Open Access Class on Epictetus' Discourses


I'm very happy to be able to report that enrollment is currently open for a 4-week, online course in which I'll be leading students through all four books of a classic Stoic text, Epictetus' discourses.  The course is being hosted in the Moodle eSchool of the Global Center for Advanced Studies, and offered for free as a service to the general educational public.

I'll be holding the first video-conferencing course sessions next Saturday.  Students who enroll in the class will be able to access the course lessons, handouts, and videos I've produced - and will be continuing to produce - for the course.  They'll also engage in discussion forums with their classmates, and of course, weekly video-conferences with me, the instructor.

The class does not bear any credit, and is being offered for personal development and enrichment, so there are no homework assignments or examinations - though, time permitting, I will create some quizzes and study questions.  The goal is simply to permit interested students the opportunity to study with a professor deeply interested in this particular thinker, his work, and his ideas.
