Abstract

QUIROZ PIZARRO, ROBERTO. IN THE JOURNEY OF THE STOICS. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2013, n.32, pp.125-144. ISSN 0718-8471.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-84712013000100006.

Often in the philosophical work has dominated the idea that it is an activity absolutely disinterested and not profaniza in worldly afFairs. However, there is a legacy Socratic reason and anthropological ethical action that has endured through the Hellenistic schools, where the attitude and temper life goes hand in hand with the intellectual guiding factor. This way of taking the philosophy as a therapeutic inquiry can look in the Stoic school, and Epictetus, is a representative of the examination for improvement of human life. In his little treatise we are warned of cognitive errors or "ambush adversaries" that obscure freedom, peace ataraxia or personal autarky.

Keywords : Epictetus; Stoic; philosophy; suffering; freedom; ataraxia; autarky; human life.
