Publisher Comments:

Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest and more generous appreciation, in part because they provide vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light they cast on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. The Nature of the Gods is a central document in this area, for it presents a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and of the Stoics, together with the critical objections to these doctrines raised by the Academic school.

Synopsis:

In the OXFORD WORLD'S CLASSICS series. Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest, in part because he provides evidence of the views of the Greek philosphers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first century Rome.
