Freedom and responsibility in the work of Epictetus (Master thesis)

Αγγέλη, Αγγελική Ι.


The thesis focuses on the aspects of the Epictetus’ philosophy with emphasis on the notions of the volition, freedom and self-awareness that lead on to good life’s flow. The work consists of eight chapters in which are developed the philosophy of the Stoic Philosopher and its importance in practical terms, as he considers that the philosophy is primarily the art of life. The first chapter (pp. 23-34) sets the historical and philosophical context in which the teaching of Epictetus is shaped. The second chapter (pp. 35-54) analyzes the basic aspects of his philosophy. Then, the third part (pp. 55-62) presents the distinction between “ἐφ’ ἡμῖν” and “οὐκ ἐφ’ ἡμῖν”, the fourth (pp.63-78) the notion of volition, and the fifth (pp. 79-96) the theory of the three fields. The sixth chapter (pp. 97-120) covers the subject of the Epictetus’ theology, the seventh (pp. 121-136) defines the notions of freedom and happiness. To sum up, the eighth chapter (pp. 137-152) explores the main influences of his philosophy on subsequent thinkers.
