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

6 editions published between 1478 and 1892 in Latin and held by 26 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
Cato Maior de senectute by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

5 editions published between 1870 and 1963 in Latin and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a complete critical edition of Cicero's Cato Maior de Senectute (On Old Age) with an introduction and commentary. The text is based on a fresh examination of the manuscript tradition while the introduction aims to place the work in the context of Cicero's writings on old age in the ancient world. The Roman and Ciceronian qualities of the work are emphasized, rather than the search for lost sources that occupied scholars in the past. Matters of text, language, and content are all considered equally in the commentary

The nature of the gods by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in Latin and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest and more generous appreciation, in part because he provides vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. Hellenistic philosophy has in recent years attracted growing interest from academic philosophers in Europe and in North America. The Nature of the Gods is a document of central significance in this area, for it presents a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and of the Stoics, together with the critical objections to these doctrines raised by the Academic school. When these Greek theories of deity are translated into the Roman context, a fascinating clash of ideologies results."--Jacket
On moral ends by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

1 edition published in 1856 in Latin and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This new translation makes one of the most important texts in ancient philosophy freshly available to modern readers. Cicero is increasingly being appreciated as an intelligent and well-educated amateur philosopher, and in this work he presents the major ethical theories of his time in a way designed to get the reader philosophically engaged in the important debates. Raphael Woolf's translation does justice to Cicero's argumentative vigour as well as to the philosophical ideas involved, while Julia Annas's introduction and notes provide a clear and accessible explanation of the philosophical context of the work. This edition will appeal to all readers interested in this central text in ancient philosophy and the history of ethics
