About the Authors
  • Plato was central both to the genesis of Stoic theory and to subsequent debates within the Stoa. These essays provide new and detailed explorations of the complex relationship between Plato and the Greek and Roman Stoic traditions, and together they show the directness and independence with which Stoics examined Plato's writing. What were the philosophical incentives to consulting and then returning to Plato's dialogues? To what extent did Plato, rather than Xenophon or Antisthenes, control Stoic reconstructions of Socrates' ethics? What explains the particular focus of Stoic polemic against Plato, and how strong is the evidence for a later reconciliation between Plato and Stoicism? This book will be important for all scholars and advanced students interested in the relationship between a major philosopher and one of the most important philosophical movements.

    • Explores the complex relationship between Plato and the Greek and Roman Stoic traditions
    • Covers a wide chronological range in the history of ancient Stoicism, but with a closely defined agenda operating throughout
    • Provides new essays by an international team of experts illuminating a crucial strand of ancient philosophy
