Stoic Studies (Hellenistic Culture and Society)

Long, A. A. Author

9780520229747: Stoic Studies (Hellenistic Culture and Society)

"Long's discussions enjoy consistently thorough contextualization; psychology cannot be understood without natural philosophy, nor dialectic without ethics, and Long's case studies show both that and how that is the case, in persuasive detail and with enviable clarity. The pieces fall into three subject areas: intellectual and cultural inheritance, ethics, and psychology."--Catherine Atherton, New College, Oxford
"A. A. Long's "Stoic Studies" does far more than bring together a set of important papers on Stoicism. Read together, the papers in this collection paint two pictures. One is of the author and his broad-minded pursuit of an intellectual 'fascination, ' a pursuit carried out with historical and literary rigour as well as considerable philosophical ingenuity. The other is of the Stoic school itself, emerging from a passion for Socratic arguments... It is a long and remarkably rich philosophical history, and Tony Long has done a very great deal to help others feel its fascination."--Brad Inwood, University of Toronto
"Long writes in a lucid, engaging way, even when treating difficult subjects or referring to complex scholarly and philosophical debates. He has a special gift for combining, in thirty pages or so, an illuminating survey of a topic with at least one sustained analysis of a key text or theory. As a result, this collection has a coherence and internal development that makes it comparable with a good monograph."--Christopher Gill, University of Exeter

Book Description:

The Greco-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.

About the Author:

A. A. Long is Irving Stone Professor of Literature in the Department of Classics at the University of California, Berkeley. His earlier works include Hellenistic Philosophy: Stoics, Epicureans, Sceptics (California, second edition 1986) and, in collaboration with John Dillon, The Question of Eclecticism: Studies in Later Greek Philosophy (California, 1988).
