Clarendon Press, 2004. 336p. Paperback. This book is a tour de force, encapsulating a profound reading of a major source for Stoic ethics within the framework of a highly accessible introduction. The full significance of Long's powerful hypothesis about Socratic basis of Epictetus' version of the Stoic project and about the nature of Epictetus' originality will provide material for scholarly debate for many years. Long has also underlined how this work of Roman Stoic practical ethics can speak to our thought-world as powerfully as it has spoken to previous eras of Western culture.

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: The philosophy of Epictetus, a freed slave in the Roman Empire, has been profoundly influential on Western thought: it offers not only stimulating ideas but practical guidance in living one's life. A. A. Long, a leading scholar of later ancient philosophy, gives the definitive presentation of the thought of Epictetus for a broad readership. Long's fresh and vivid translations of a selection of the best of Epictetus' discourses show that his ideas are as valuable and striking today as they were amost two thousand years ago.
This is a book for anyone interested in what we can learn from ancient philosophy about how to live our lives.

About the Author: A. A. Long is in the Department of Classics, University of California, Berkeley.
