Cicero on oratory and orators by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

61 editions published between 1855 and 1986 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains Cicero{u2019}s De Oratore and Brutus, influential sources over the centuries for ideas on rhetoric and train{u00AD}ing for public leadership. The De Oratore, written in 55 B.C., argues that rhetoric is socially significant because states are established and main{u00AD}tained through the leadership of eloquent men. The three books of dialogues in this volume feature discussions between well-known figures in Roman history, in{u00AD}cluding Lucius Crassus, Marcus An{u00AD}tonius, Quintus Lutatius Catulus, Quin{u00AD}tus Marcius Scaevola, Caius Aurelius Cotta, Julius Caesar Strabo Vopicus, and Publius Sulpicus Rufus. The Brutus continues the theme of the dialogues, giving a history of eminent orators whose performances exemplify the Ciceronian theory that rhetoric final{u00AD}ly adds up to leadership

On the nature of the universe by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the passion of a true poet, Titus Lucretius Carus (ca. 99-55 B.C.E.) expounds the most coherent and eloquent system of materialism surviving from the ancient world. Developing the atomic theory of his master, Epicurus, Lucretius discusses the motion of atoms, natural phenomena, sensation, free will, and the soul's relation to the body. Most importantly, Lucretius sees his teaching as a bulwark against religious fears and prejudices. Since death is final, humankind need not fear everlasting torture and punishment

Memorabilia by Xenophon( Book )

5 editions published between 1899 and 1906 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An essential text for understanding Socrates, Xenophon's Memorabilia is the compelling tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, providing a rare firsthand account of Socrates' life and philosophy. The Memorabilia is invaluable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. The longest of Xenophon's four Socratic works, it is particularly revealing about the differences between Socrates and his philosophical predecessors
