Re: The scientific basis for Stoicism

On Stoic Logic:

"As Epictetus points out Book 2 Chapter 25 'How is Logic Necessary' we can't even begin to reason with ourselves or with each other unless we can demonstrate logically each argument." - Paul.

Re: Epictetus: a stoic and socratic guide to life

A thumbs-up for A. A. Long's Epictetus: A Stoic and Socratic Guide to Life.

"[Long] emphatically states that he is not a Stoic, which perhaps has allowed him to write about the school more objectively, although he seems more enthusiastic in this new book on Epictetus as an individual." - Paul.

"Some of you may be interested in a small web page consisting of a few study questions keyed to the Higginson translation of Epictetus' Handbook--thanks to Keith Seddon for making this available on the Internet--and my answers to them" - Jan Garrett.
