Life-Changing Philosophy Books

Recommended by author Eric Weiner in an interview by Nigel Warburton at Five Books.

"It’s in fact the exception, not the rule, that philosophers were solitary, isolated figures. Even Epicurus, who taught outside the city of Athens, wasn’t removed from his commune colleagues, the people who lived in the garden and studied with him there."

See Epictetus, The Enchiridon, in Gateway to the Great Books (10 Vol., 1963) volume 10; The Discourses, in Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 54 Vol., 1952) volume 12, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volume 11.
