31 Days Of Loving Wisdom In Daily Life

The love of wisdom gives meaning to life. This month's series will focus on "The Enchiridion" ("The Handbook") of Epictetus, a short work containing a treasure trove of advice for living as a lover of wisdom. These writings of this Greek slave influenced one of the best and greatest Emperors of the Ancient world. Without too much effort a student can easily recognize Biblical themes. The present-day psychotherapy treatment know as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is rooted in these writings. Regardless of your worldview, spending a few minutes in The Handbook will be rewarding.
