The Stoic Bible

The Stoic bible is consisting of 3 public domain books, based on the remaining works of the famous stoics: Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, and Seneca, There were many stoics but most of their works were lost.
The book is far from perfect, I collected 3 books and removed their introductions so the readers can get into the main texts directly and added clear red numbers.

Contents : 

  • The meditations of Marcus Aurelius which is translated by Méric Casaubon
  • The Epictetus' work: discourses and handbook translated by Elizabeth Carter.
  • Seneca's moral letters, which is famous by the name "letters from a stoic" Translated by Roger L'Estrange

Stoicism is a moral philosophy that was found by Zeno who was a student of Cynics, That is why the effect of the Greek Cynics are present in the works of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius.

The purpose of Stoicism is to be virtuous and to follow Nature and reason, Concentrating on only what we control to live a purposeful life.
