Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC), Roman orator and statesman, was born at Arpinum of a wealthy local family. By 70 BC he had established himself as the leading barrister in Rome, and was elected praetor in the year 66. Obtaining honours usually reserved for members of the aristocracy, Cicero was an uncompromising politician, and the greatest Roman orator. Horace C. P. McGregor graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford, in classics and philosophy. He entered the Home Office where he served until his retirement in 1967. He died in 1993. John M. Ross was a colleague of McGregor's, also with a degree in classics and philosophy.
The Nature of the Godsby Marcus Tullius Cicero
Cicero's philosophical works provide vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age and cast light on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. THE NATURE OF THE GODS presents a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and the Stoics, together with critical objection to these doctrines by the Academic school.
