This new edition will help students and scholars of ancient philosophy make sense of a work whose intellectual content and status have often been found puzzling. Along with volumes in the Clarendon Later Ancient Philosophers series on Epictetus and Seneca, it will help to chart the history of Stoic philosophy in the first and second century AD. The translation is designed to be accessible to modern readers and all Greek and Latin are translated in the introduction and commentary.
Christopher Gill is Professor of Ancient Thought at the University of Exeter. His interests focus on Greek and Roman ethics and psychology, including ancient ideas of personality and self, and the philosophical therapy of emotions. He is also concerned with the relationship between ancient and modern ideas on these topics. He has published a number of monographs and edited volumes on these subjects, especially with Oxford University Press.
