9780521041485: Justice and Generosity: Studies in Hellenistic Social and Political Philosophy - Proceedings of the Sixth Symposium Hellenisticum

Justice and Generosity presents a collection of original essays by leading scholars on the social and political philosophies of the Hellenistic period, covering the work of both Greek and Roman thinkers such as Cicero, Seneca, Epicurus, and the Cynics. It challenges the conventional view of Hellenistic philosophy as apolitical, and offers a fresh and comprehensive guide to the main currents of social and political philosophy in a period of increasing interest to classicists, philosophers, and cultural and intellectual historians.

Book Description:

Hegel's often-echoed verdict on the apolitical character of philosophy in the Hellenistic age is challenged in this collection of essays, originally presented at the sixth meeting of the Symposium Hellenisticum. An international team of leading scholars reveals a vigorous intellectual scene of great diversity.

Review:

"All contributions are worthwhile treatments of substantive questions and deserve attention from scholars and students. Despite the wide range of interest represented here, the volume is surprisingly coherent in showing that hellenistic philosophers were much more interested in the city-state than is sometimes supposed." Religious Studies Review
