This is the complete works of Musonius Rufus (25-95CE), the man who taught Epictetus. While he was very well-known and respected during his time, he is less widely known now. He was a social activist, a proto-feminist, a vegetarian, and a minimalist. No topic is too small or too big for him.

Here are some of the topics covered in this book
* Women and men are equal.
* Why hardships are of little importance?
* Why everyone should study philosophy?
* Where you live or are forced to live is of no importance.
* Don't take things personally and be personally insulted.
* Live "according to nature"
* Live a virtuous family life.
* Live a simple life.
*Children should obey their parents, but not indiscriminately.
*If you keep practicing virtue, you don't need anything special in your old age.
