The class begins officially on Sunday, July 24 with the introductory class sessions (carried out through video-conferencing), but I'll be opening the first course modules a week for students before the class starts. It is a six-week, entirely online
We'll be starting the course with some general discussion of Stoicism as a movement, and then focusing on the shorter work, the Enchiridion for the entire first week. Each week following that, we will work through one of the four books of the Discourses. Then, we'll finish with a full week devoted to further in-depth discussion of student-selected topics in Epictetus' Stoic philosophy.
Students participating in the class gain access to a structured learning environment, stocked with videos, handouts, lesson pages, worksheets quizzes, and other resources designed to assist them in studying Epictetus' thought. They also engage in ongoing discussion about key points of Stoic philosophy with myself and their fellow learners in discussion forums and weekly videoconferencing class sessions (recorded so that those who miss them can still watch them later)
If you're interested in enrolling in the course, would like more information, or would like to get our mailing list for the future classes we've got coming up (Nietzsche, Anselm, Kant, and a reprisal of Aristotle are in the works), click here to fill out this form. I'll be producing a video specifically about this class, providing a bit more information, early next week - so you'll want to watch my channel and my social media for that.
At the time I write this, we have five students already enrolled. This will likely prove to be quite a popular class, so we may end up opening another section if enrollment is particularly strong. If you've ever wanted to study Stoicism, and in particular this great exponent of their practical philosophy, you won't want to miss out on this opportunity!
