21 Free Course Videos on Epictetus' Enchiridion

Last summer, I created a series of videos on a classic text of Stoic philosophy in my new History of Ideas YouTube channel - Epictetus' Enchiridion.  There are 21 roughly half-hour videos in the series, and they provide commentary, explanations, and lots of examples covering the entire work, line by line, skipping nothing.

As some of you may know, I've also been producing a similar, but much more ambitious series focused on a much longer work, G.W.F. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit - the Half Hour Hegel series.  After seeing the success of that approach, I decided to apply it to this much more widely read book by Epictetus.

Back in October, I publicly released those 21 new Epictetus videos over the course of Stoic Week.  I also incorporated them into a full online course - Epictetus' Enchiridion: Ancient Philosophy & Peace of Mind - which students can sign up for and take for free, and work through at their own pace.

Here's the full set of the videos - if there's any parts of passages of the Enchiridion you've found puzzling or challenging, just click on the video for that chapter, and see whether the commentary helps clear matters up or not!
