Posted December 25, 2008
When I bought this book I was interested in learning about Stoicism, and that was exactly what I got in return. This book is perferct for those studying anchient philosophy or those interested in the topic in general. I found this book very comprehensive and lucid. I was happy that John Sellars included a list of the past Stoic leaders and gave a short biography on them, so that while you were reading the book you would understand the Stoics he was discusing. By the time I finished this book I almost felt like an expert on the topic. He discusses all three main branches of Stoic philosophy; Epistemology, Metaphysics, and Stoic Ethics. He also has a chapter that discusses where Stoicism has affted our culture, and how Stoicism is still alive today. I recommend this book to philosophy students, scholars, and those interested in anchient greek thought.
