This Stoicism audiobook collection contains three of the most influential Stoic pieces. Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, and Epictetus helped to shape Stoicism with their writings of “Meditations”, “On the Shortness of Life”, and “Enchiridion”.
In his personal writings of “Meditations”, Marcus Aurelius records private notes to himself as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. “On the Shortness of Life” by Seneca is a moral essay in which Seneca brings up many Stoic principles on the nature of time, namely that people waste much of it in meaningless pursuits. According to the essay, nature gives people enough time to do what is important, and the individual must allot it properly. In general, time is best used by living in the present moment in pursuit of the intentional, purposeful life. Finally, “Enchiridion” by Epictetus is a short manual of Stoic ethical advice and an excellent summary of Stoic principles. The narration of this Stoicism collection is great for anyone interested in Stoicism and is narrated brilliantly by Johnathan Waters.
