Along with Marcus Aurelius and Seneca, the work of Epictetus is considered as foundational in the Stoic school of Philosophy.

Epictetus believed that people could accept whatever happened to them in a calm and unemotional manner if they recognized that certain things were not under their control. born into slavery, and disabled since birth, he still maintained that individuals were responsible for their own actions.

A central claim of his was that each of us would always be happy, if we can learn to desire that things should be exactly as they are.
