Lessons in liberation: Epictetus as educator

Abstract
My project is to examine in detail Epictetus’ philosophy in order to provide a deeper understanding of him as a Stoic educator keen on liberating his students from unhappiness. This understanding of Epictetus will provide the grist for developing an Epictetan approach to navigating various challenges in contemporary life, including animals, games and sport, travel, death, and love.
