About the Authors
  • This new translation makes one of the most important texts in ancient philosophy freshly available to modern readers. Cicero was an intelligent and well-educated amateur philosopher, and in this work he presents the major ethical theories of his time in a way designed to get the reader philosophically engaged in the important debates. Raphael Woolf's translation does justice to Cicero's argumentative vigor as well as to the philosophical ideas involved, while Julia Annas' introduction and notes provide a clear and accessible explanation of the philosophical context of the work.

    • Excellent new translation by Raphael Woolf
    • Julia Annas is one of the clearest and most student-friendly writers on ancient philosophy
    • The importance of this text to both ancient philosophy and the history of ethics is increasingly being recognized

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a useful and important edition, not least because of the introduction and notes...This discussion grounds students and gives them a stake in the issues...This free translation is elegant, polished, and highly readable, and has the feel of intelligent contemporary English...this is certainly the text for a survey course or a Latinless reader, and a wide range of readers will want to have a look at the discussion and notes." Religious Studies Review
