The philosophy of Epictetus

£29.99

Product description

Hardback. 2007. Oxford University Press. The book itself is in good condition, the plastic cover has some scrapes on it, but is otherwise in good condition. The book formerly belonged to Westminster Libraries, as seen from a stamp on top of the book. As an ex-library book it does have stamps and labels.
The Stoic philosopher Epictetus has been one of the most influential of ancient thinkers, both in antiquity itself and in modern times. Theodore Scaltsas and Andrew S. Mason present ten specially written papers which discuss Epictetus' thought on a wide range of subjects, 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 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 to life.
