There are points of similarity. Camus advocates integrity as opposed to morality; there are no outwardly-defined rules, there is only loyalty to your own values. This is similar to Stoicism: every act is indifferent, and every act has the potentia.

The Discourses is quite a big book, a more condensed version of his message can be found in the Enchiridion (The Handbook), which I'd also recommend. I personally prefer the discourse as it fleshes out Epictetus' message more fully but the Enchiridion is a good start if you just want an introduction to Epictetus' views.4/5(46).

As a reference to the thoughts and contribution to philosophy of Epictetus, this is the best book I have encountered for Kindle.
