Cambridge Companion to the Stoics by Brad Inwood

Book Description

This unique volume offers an odyssey through the ideas of the Stoics in three particular ways: first, through the historical trajectory of the school itself and its influence; second, through the recovery of the history of Stoic thought; third, through the ongoing confrontation with Stoicism, showing how it refines philosophical traditions, challenges the imagination, and ultimately defines the kind of life one chooses to lead. A distinguished roster of specialists have written an authoritative guide to the entire philosophical tradition. The first two chapters chart the history of the school in the ancient world, and are followed by chapters on the core themes of the Stoic system: epistemology, logic, natural philosophy, theology, determinism, and metaphysics. There are two chapters on what might be thought of as the heart and soul of the Stoics system: ethics.

On Benefits by Brad Inwood On Benefits, Paperback (September 2014)

Part of the Complete Works series, this title, written between 56 and 64 CE, is a treatise addressed to Seneca's close friend Aebutius Liberalis. It is the longest of Seneca's works dealing with a single subject - how to give and receive benefits and how to express gratitude appropriately.

Ethics After Aristotle by Brad Inwood Ethics After Aristotle, Hardback (June 2014)

The earliest philosophers thought deeply about ethical questions, but Aristotle founded ethics as a well-defined discipline. Brad Inwood focuses on the reception of Aristotelian ethical thought in the Hellenistic and Roman worlds and explores the thinker's influence on the philosophers who followed in his footsteps from 300 BCE to 200 CE.
