Cicero : on Moral Ends (01 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new translation makes one of the most important texts in ancient philosophy freshly available to modern readers. Cicero was an intelligent and well-educated amateur philosopher, and in this work he presents the major ethical theories of his time in a way designed to get the reader philosophically engaged in the important debates. Raphael Woolf's translation does justice to Cicero's argumentative vigor as well as to the philosophical ideas involved, while Julia Annas' introduction and notes provide a clear and accessible explanation of the philosophical context of the work.

Synopsis:

A new and accessible translation of Cicero's important work on ethics.

Synopsis:

This is a complete critical edition of Cicero's Cato Maior de Senectute (On Old Age )with an introduction and commentary. The text is based on a fresh examination of the manuscript tradition while the introduction aims to place the work in the context of Cicero's writings on old age in the ancient world. The Roman and Ciceronian qualities of the work are emphasized, rather than the search for lost sources that occupied scholars in the past. Matters of text, language, and content are all considered equally in the commentary.

Synopsis:

This new translation of Cicero’s important work on ethics does justice to the argumentative vigour and philosophical ideas of the text, and the volume also offers a clear and helpful introduction and notes.
