The audio book of my translation of Cicero’s Stoic Paradoxes is now available on Amazon, iTunes, and Audible. You can find it by clicking on the image above. The audio book is complete and unabridged; it contains the complete texts of Stoic Paradoxes, as well as the Dream of Scipio, along with summaries and commentary.
An ideal introduction to the six basic “pillars” of Stoic thought, it is also a great value at $6.95.
Cicero’s Stoic Paradoxes is a brilliant and accessible summary of the six major ethical beliefs of Stoicism. The nature of moral goodness, the possession of virtue, good and bad conduct, the transcendence of wisdom, and the sources of real wealth are all discussed with the author’s characteristic intensity and wit.
This is the only existing modern translation of this little-known classic, as well as the most detailed study.
Also included here is Cicero’s visionary essay “The Dream of Scipio”, which is a compelling testament to his belief in the immortality of the soul. This imaginative masterpiece has been largely forgotten in the modern era, and is ripe for rediscovery. Taken together, these two works provide a glimpse into the mind of one of the most influential thinkers in the Western tradition.
The audio book has been a Number 1 New Release on Amazon:
