'...a stimulating read for anyone interested in either the thought of this remarkable man, or the development of ideas and language in the Late Roman Republic...' JACT '...well illustrates the range of current interests and approaches to these texts...well worth reading...' Classical Review '..For all interested in Cicero or Hellenistic philosophy this excellent book is highly recommended in its entirety...' Journal of Roman Studies Cicero may be best known for his politics, but he was also one of the few significant Roman writers of philosophy. This book presents a selection of new scholarly work on Cicero the philosopher, bringing together original contributions from twelve leading scholars in the field. The introduction, by the editor, provides a general account of Cicero's philosophical writing and its intellectual background, setting the papers usefully in context. The papers discuss Cicero from a wide range of perspectives including his views on Plato and Aristotle, his definition of res publica, the continuity of his scepticism, and his account of Epicurean pleasures. A reflection of the notable revival of interest in Cicero's philosophical writing among classical scholars and philosophers in recent years, this volume embodies a diversity of approaches combined with a common conviction that Cicero is worth taking seriously as a philosophical writer.
