9780415188524: Roman Philosophers

The philosophers of the Roman world were asking questions whose answers had practical effects on people's lives in antiquity, and which still influence our thinking to this day. In spite of being neglected in the modern era, this important age of philosophical thought is now undergoing a revival of interest.
Mark Morford's lively survey makes these recent scholarly developments accessible to a wide audience, examining the writings and ideas of both famous and lesser known figures - from Cato the Censor in 155 BCE to Marcus Aurelius in 180 CE. Based around extensive and fully translated quotations from the philosophical texts of the era, full consideration is given throughout to historical, political and cultural context.

About the Author:

Mark Morford lives in Massachusetts. His other published work includes Classical Mythology, produced in partnership with Robert Lenardon.

Review:

"An easily digestable introduction to the rich but neglected Roman Philosophical tradition....Morford's book is an invaluable contribution to a neglected topic [and] a very valuabel who's who and what's where of Roman Philosophy. The volume deserves a place in the library of every classicist, philosopher, historian of Western thought, and intelligent layperson."
-"New England Classical Journal
