Product Overview

`Offers a great deal of interesting and important work on a significant figure in ancient philosophy'. Brad Inwood, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

The Stoic philosopher Epictetus has been one of the msot influential of ancient thinkers, both in antiquity itself and in modern times. Theodore Scaltsas and Andrew S. Mason present ten specially written papers originally delivered at a conference in 2001, organised by the Municipality of Larnaca, Cyprus (ancient Citium, birthplace of Zeno, the found of stoicism). The papers discuss Epictetus' thought on a wide range of subject, including ethics, logic, theology, and psychology; explore his relations to his predecessors (including his two philosophical heroes, Socrates and Diogenes the Cynic, as well as Zeno and the earlier Stoic tradition); and examine his influence on later thinkers. Written by some of the leading experts in the field, the essays in this volume will be a fascinating resource for students and scholars of ancient philosophy, and anyone with in an interest in the Stoic attitude of life.
