Stoic Studies by A. A. Long
Book DescriptionFor the past three decades A. A. Long has been at the forefront of research in Hellenistic philosophy. In this book he assembles a dozen articles on Stoicism previously published in journals and conference proceedings. The collection is biased in favour of Professor Long's more recent studies of Stoicism and is focused on three themes: the Stoics' interpretation of their intellectual tradition, their ethics and their psychology. The contents of the book reflect the peculiarly holistic and systematic features of Stoicism. The papers are printed here in their original form for the most part, but the author has made some minor corrections and stylistic or bibliographical changes. He has also added a postscript to three papers whose topics have been the subject of much discussion during the years since they first appeared.

Books By Author A. A. Long
Free Will, Paperback (January 2013)
Where does the notion of free will come from? How and when did it develop, and what did that development involve? This title offers an account of the history, the notion of a free will that emerged from powerful assumptions about the relation between divine providence, correctness of individual choice, and self-enslavement due to incorrect choice.
Shame and Necessity, Paperback (April 2008)
Claims that while we are in many ways different from the Greeks the differences are not to be traced to a shift in basic conceptions of ethical life. This book argues that we are more like the ancients than we are prepared to acknowledge, and only when this is understood can we grasp our differences from them, such as our rejection of slavery.
Epictetus, Paperback (January 2004)
The philosophy of Epictetus, a freed slave in the Roman Empire, has been influential on Western thought: it offers not only stimulating ideas but also practical guidance in living one's life. This work gives the presentation of the thought of Epictetus. It is intended for those interested in what we can learn from ancient philosophy.
