Abstract: This thesis consists of a critical text, translation and running commentary on Epictetus II.23 which is entitled On the faculty of speech. In this diatribe, Epictetus discusses the proper role of speech, rhetoric and logic in the philosophical life. The commentary attempts to elucidate Epictetus' views, to show how he himself employs rhetoric and to make clear the principles of Stoic physics and ethics which underlie the text.
