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 introduction and so the readers can get into the main texts and added clear red numbers. 


Contents : 

  • The meditations of Marcus Aurelius which 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 following Nature and reason, Concentrating on only what we control to live a purposeful life.  

The god or gods in Stoicism is similar to Pantheism or Monism, where the universe and God are one and everywhere even in us. unlike the idea of Abrahamic God.

The idea of providence in Stoicism is that the universe is created for the best for the whole, so whatever happens, it is for the best, there is no evil nor goodness outside yourself. so you need to concentrate on what your control only. 

Stoicism is useful for removing negative emotions and insists on goal-oriented actions.
