Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

De Officiis (On Duties) is Cicero's last theoretical work and contains his analysis, in a Greek theoretical framework, of the political and ethical values of the Roman governing class in the late Republic. It has often been treated merely as a key to the Greek philosophical works that Cicero used, but this volume aims to render De Officiis, which had a profound impact upon subsequent political thinkers, more intelligible by explaining its relation to its own time and place. All the standard series features are present, including a wholly new translation, a concise introduction by a leading scholar, select bibliography, chronology, notes on vocabulary and brief biographies of the most prominent individuals mentioned in the text.

Synopsis:

De Officiis, Cicero's last theoretical work on the political and ethical values of the Roman governing class in the late Republic, is made more meaningful through an explanation of its relationship to its own time and place.

Synopsis:

'On Duties' was Cicero's last philosophical work. In it he made use of Greek thought to formulate the political and ethical values of Roman Republican society as he saw them, revealing incidentally a great deal about actual practice.

Synopsis:

This volume aims to render De Officiis, Cicero's last theoeretical work, more intelligible by explaining its relation to its own time and place.
