The great insights of the Sotics are spread over a wide range of ancient sources. This book brings them all together for the first time. It systematically presents what the various Stoic philosophers said on every important topic, accompanied by an eloquent commentary that is clear and concise. The result is a set of philosophy lessons for everyone - the most valuable wisdom of ages past made available for our times, and for all time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Farnsworth's Classical English Metaphor "Astoundingly rich and dense - an education in itself, and highly enjoyable" -- Mark Helprin "Novelist"
Praise for Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric "Not only educational but delightful." -- David Mamet "Playwright"
It is reported that upon Seneca's tomb are written the words, "Who's Minding the Stoa?" He would be pleased to know the answer is "Ward Farnsworth." -- David Mamet "Playwright"
An extraordinary book. The Practicing Stoic provides enough richness to power a hundred years of seminars, combined with a framework of organization and interpretation that makes the subject clear and accessible. Worth much more than its weight in gold. -- Mark Helprin "Novelist"
