ONE OF THE AUTHOR'S MOST FAMOUS WORKS: ON EVILS ‚ " LEADING TO NEOSTOICISM. Lipsius wrote a series of philosophical works designed to revive ancient Stoicism. This sparked the prolific rise of the European intellectual movement known as Neostoicism, a blending of both Stoicism and Christianity. The most famous of these works is De Constantia Libri Duo ('Two Books on Constancy'), published in 1584. The title is borrowed from Seneca's dialogue De Constantia Sapientis. This work was so immensely popular that it immediately went through numerous editions. "His Manunductio ad Stoicam philosophiam and Physiologia Stoicurum (1604) give the first full account of Stoicism, while his own De constanita (1584), which owes much to Seneca in both thought and style, went through thirty-two editions and was translated into several [European] languages."(Reynolds). It was translated into English four times between 1594 and 1670, with the first English translation issued in 1594 by John Stradling. This work was conceived as an attempt to revive Stoic philosophy as a living movement as it had been in antiquity and, in particular, as a practical antidote to public evils. It's for this work that Lipsius became famous in the succeeding centuries, often called the father of Neostoicism. These " ideas about the ideal citizen‚ "a man that acts according to reason, is answerable to himself, is in control of his emotions, and is ready to fight‚ "found wide acceptance in the turbulent times of the Reformation. This Lipsian view, translated to politics, entails rationalization of the state and its apparatus of government, autocratic rule by the prince, discipline dispensed to subjects, and strong military defense. These principles lie at the foundation of the early modern state." (Wikip.). ‚ " Encyclopedia of Philosophy. REFERENCES: Reynolds & Wilson. Scholars & Scribes, (1978), p. 163; Osorio, Peter I.
