Abstract:

"The Stoic Idea of the City offers a pioneering treatment of the political philosophy of ancient Stoicism. Classical scholar Malcolm Schofield explores the Stoics' notions of natural law and world citizenship, which - as Martha Nussbaum notes in her new foreword - constitute their most important legacy to modern political thought. But Schofield begins by excavating from scattered and underused textual evidence the Platonized conception of erotic love treated by Zeno, founder of the school, as a key principle of political unity. An epilogue specially written for this edition further enhances this text as a standard work on Stoicism."--Jacket.
