In lively and accessible style, Cicero presents the insights of Greek philosophers on the subject, reporting the views of Epicureans and Peripatetics and giving a detailed account of the Stoic position, which he himself favors for its close reasoning and moral earnestness. Both the specialist and the general reader will be fascinated by the Stoics\' analysis of the causes of grief, their classification of emotions by genus and species, their lists of oddly named character flaws, and by the philosophical debate that develops over the utility of anger in politics and war. Margaret Graver\'s elegant and idiomatic translation makes Cicero\'s work accessible not just to classicists but to anyone interested in ancient philosophy and psychotherapy or in the philosophy of emotion. The accompanying commentary explains the philosophical concepts discussed in the text and supplies many helpful parallels from Greek sources.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"PREFACE -- ABBREVIATIONS AND MATTERS OF CITATION -- INTRODUCTION -- ABOUT THE TRANSLATION -- A NOTE ON THE TEXT -- TUSCULAN DISPUTATIONS -- BOOK 3 -- BOOK 4 -- COMMENTARY -- BOOK 3: ON GRIEF -- BOOK 4: ON EMOTIONS -- APPENDIXES: SOURCES FOR CICERO\'S ACCOUNT -- APPENDIX A.
