The Cambridge companion to the Stoics by Brad Inwood( Book )

38 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 2,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The Poem of Empedocles : a text and translation with an introduction by Empedocles( )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The principle aim of this book is ... to make available for students with a philosophical interest in Empedocles (whether they read ancient Greek or not) the texts necessary for an exploration of his thought" (from the Introduction). This revised edition integrates new material from recently discovered papyrus into previously known fragments of Empedocles' work. The volume presents the Greek text with English facing-page translation. Inwood (classics, University of Toronto) provides an introduction to the material and puts the work in its historical and philosophical context. A concordance is also provided. c. Book News Inc
Reading Seneca : Stoic philosophy at Rome by Brad Inwood( )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In each of these essays Seneca is considered as a philosopher, but with as much account as possible taken of his life, his education, his intellectual and literary background, his career, and his self-presentation as an author. Seneca emerges as a discerning and well-read Stoic, with a strong inclination to think for himself in the context of an intellectual climate teeming with influences from other schools."--Jacket

Ethics after Aristotle by Brad Inwood( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the earliest times, philosophers and others have thought deeply about ethical questions. But it was Aristotle who founded ethics as a discipline with clear principles and well-defined boundaries. Ethics After Aristotle focuses on the reception of Aristotelian ethical thought in the Hellenistic and Roman worlds, underscoring the thinker's enduring influence on the philosophers who followed in his footsteps from 300 BCE to 200 C.E. Beginning with Aristotle's student and collaborator Theophrastus, Brad Inwood traces the development of Aristotelian ethics up to the third-century Athenian philosopher Alexander of Aphrodisias. He shows that there was no monolithic tradition in the school, but a rich variety of moral theory. The philosophers of the Peripatetic school produced surprisingly varied theories in dialogue with other philosophical traditions, generating rich insight into human virtue and happiness. What unifies the different strands of thought -- what makes them distinctively Aristotelian -- is a form of ethical naturalism: that our knowledge of the good and virtuous life depends first on understanding our place in the natural world, and second on the exercise of our natural dispositions in distinctively human activities. What is now referred to as "virtue ethics," Inwood argues, is a less important part of Aristotle's legacy than the naturalistic approach Aristotle articulated and his philosophical descendants developed further. Offering a wide range of ways of thinking about ethics from an ancient perspective, Ethics after Aristotle is a penetrating study of how philosophy evolves in the wake of an unusually powerful and original thinker. -- from book jacket

Seneca : selected philosophical letters by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seneca's Letters to Lucilius are a rich source of information about ancient Stoicism, an influential work for early modern philosophers, and a fascinating philosophical document in their own right. This selection of the letters aims to include those which are of greatest philosophical interest, especially those which highlight the debates between Stoics and Platonists or Aristotelians in the first century AD, and those which engage with the issue, still important today, of the relationship between technical philosophical enquiry and the various purposes for which philosophy is practised. In addition to examining the philosophical content of the letters, the commentary discusses their literary and philosophical background and their relationship with other prose works by Seneca." "Seneca is the earliest Stoic author for whom we have access to a large number of complete works, and these works were highly influential in later centuries. He was also a politically influential advisor to the Roman emperor Nero and a celebrated author of prose and verse. His philosophical acuity and independence of mind make his works exciting and challenging for the modern reader."--Jacket

Hellenistic philosophy : introductory readings by Brad Inwood( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in Hellenistic philosophy has grown substantially in recent years. Along with the increase in interest, the need for a reliable and convenient guide to the source materials has become apparent. These new translations by Professors Gerson and Inwood provide the most comprehensive selection available of Hellenistic philosophy, written over a period of some eight hundred years, in both Latin and Greek. By presenting the central texts of Epicureanism, Stoicism, and Scepticism with a consistent vocabulary, these scrupulous new translations convey a sense of the ongoing discussion among the Hellenistic philosophers, showing the common conceptual ground for most of the argumentation in the texts and enabling the contemporary reader to comprehend their contribution to Western philosophy. Abundant cross-references, a glossary of philosophical terms, a list of philosophers, and a general index enhance the usefulness of this valuable work. - Back cover

The Epicurus reader : selected writings and testimonia by Epicurus( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A total philosophy of life, death, religion, science, ethics, and culture promising liberation from the obstacles that stand in the way of our happiness, the teachings of Epicurus claimed many thousand committed followers all over the ancient Mediterranean world and deeply influenced later European thought. From the first years of its development, however, Epicureanism faced hostile opposition, and, as a result, much of our evidence for the content of this teaching is unhelpful and even misleading. The Epicurus Reader fills the need for a reliable selection and translation of the main surviving evidence, some of it never previously translated into English.Included here, with the exception of Lucretius De Rerum Natura, are the most important surviving ancient texts of a system of thought that even today remains a powerful living philosophy. The Epicurus Reader will be greatly welcomed by anybody who teaches Hellenistic Philosophy, or Epicureanism in particular, at any level. It offers a judicious and ample selection of texts, including the only extant writings by Epicurus. More importantly it provides a reliable, often admirably accurate translation of these sometimes difficult texts."--Publisher's description
