Ep. 43 The Complete Works of Epictetus with Translator Robin Waterfield
Show Notes

One of the big three stoic sources from antiquity is Epictetus, and central to any understanding of such works is a good translation, yet the work of translation is not a straight forward task of simply taking words in another language and finding their equivalent in whatever language it is your are translating it into. Robin Waterfield is a celebrated translator of many ancient Greek and Roman texts, and here in this episode we discuss with him his latest translation, the complete works of Epictetus.
