ONASANDER (Onasandros), a Platonic philosopher, dedicated to his work The General to the Roman Veranius, who was a consul in A.D. 49 and died in Britain in A.D. 59.

The Discourses as reported by Arrian ; The manual ; and, the fragments by Epictetus( Book )

115 editions published between 1925 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epictetus ('Acquired', probably his real name) was a crippled Greek slave of Phrygia during Nero's reign (A.D.54-68) who heard lectures by the Stoic Musonius before he was freed. Expelled with other philosophers by the emperor Domitian in 89 or 92 he settled permanently in Nicopolis in Epirus and, in a school which he called 'healing place for sick souls', taught a practical philosophy, details of which were taken down by his pupil Flavius Arrianus and survive in four books of 'Diatribae' or Discourses and a smaller 'Encheiridon' or Handbook which gives brifly the chief doctrines of the other work. He lived apparently into the reign of Hadrian (A.D. 117-138). Epictetus was a teacher and preacher of practical Stoic ethics, broad and firm in method, sublime in thought, and now humorous, now sad or severe in spirit. How should one live righteously? Our god-given will is our paramount possession, and we must not covet others'. We must not resist fortune. Man is part of a system of men and God; men are reasoning beings (in feeble bodies) and must conform to God's mind and the will of nature. Epictetus presents us also with a pungent picture of the perfect (Stoic) man

De jure naturae et gentium libri octo by Samuel Pufendorf( Book )

English translation of the 1688 edition of De Jure Naturae Et Gentium Libri Octo. Pufendorf's Law of Nature and Nations presents in eight books (in one volume) an entire system of jurisprudence, private, public, and international, based on the conception of natural law. Beginning with a consideration of the fundamental principles of law and its various divisions, Pufendorf proceeds to a discussion of the validity of customs, the doctrines of necessity and innate human reason. The remainder of this work applies the principles of Books I & II to various matters of private law. --
Two books of the Elements of universal jurispurdence by Samuel Pufendorf( )

23 editions published between 1931 and 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two Books of the Elements of Universal Jurisprudence was Pufendorf's first work, published in 1660. Its appearance effectively inaugurated the modern natural-law movement in the German-speaking world. The work also established Pufendorf as a key figure and laid the foundations for his major works, which were to sweep across Europe and North America. Elements of Universal Jurisprudence established Pufendorf's political theory, which, when fully developed, became the most significant alternative to rights-based theories. Pufendorf rejected the concept of natural rights as liberties and the suggestion that political government is justified by its protection of such rights, arguing instead for a principled limit to the state's role in human life. The Liberty Fund edition is based on the translation by William Abbott Oldfather prepared for the Classics of International Law series published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
