About the Authors
  • The Graeco-Roman philosophy called Stoicism has become a major subject of research during the past three decades. In this book a leading scholar in the field assembles a dozen of his papers on Stoicism, focusing on three themes: ethics, psychology and the Stoics' interpretation of their intellectual tradition. The papers are distinctive in their accessibility and breadth of reference, both ancient and modern, and the collection has considerable thematic unity.

    • Readers will be grateful to have Professor Long's papers on Stoicism gathered in one book
    • Unlike many collections of previously published paper, this book has considerable thematic unity
    • A. A. Long is co-author (with David Sedley) of the extremely successful Hellenistic Philosophers (CUP 1987)

    "Readers who share Long's fascination with Stoicism will richly benefit from the careful study that this challenging collection of articles, which so trenchantly clarifies those theories and concepts, requires." William O. Stephens, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
