Doing harm seems much harder to justify than merely allowing harm. If a boulder is rushing towards Bob, you may refuse to save Bob's life by driving your car into the path of the boulder if doing so would cost you your own life. You may not push the boulder towards Bob to save your own life. This principle--the Doctrine of Doing and Allowing--requires... more...

Although he was born into slavery and endured a permanent physical disability, Epictetus (ca. 50?ca. 130 AD) maintained that all people are free to control their lives and to live in harmony with nature.
