    In the area of reception, I've written on the reception of Cicero's teaching on natural right in the 18th century and on the reception of Lucretius by Leo Strauss. I continue to work on Cicero's philosophy, and I am co-editing (with Thomas Bénatouïl) the forthcoming Cambridge Companion to Cicero's Philosophy. For the philosophical terminology of Cicero we have the writings of H. Merguet: Lexikon zu den philosophischen Schriften Ciceros (2 vols., ), and Lexikon zu den Reden des Ciceros (4 vols., ). Both were printed at Jena, and reproduced, after the original, at Hildesheim ().

    His book on the intersection of philosophy and literature and the gendering of personhood in Lucretius, Cicero, and Seneca is entitled Personification and the Feminine in Roman Philosophy and was published by Cambridge University Press in August of In addition to Greek and Latin in all genres for students at all levels, Alex’s teaching.   Never has Lucretius been read as an original philosophical poet of a radical materialism that goes far beyond anything Epicurus achieved. This is what I have tried to do in my books. Even more provocatively, Lucretius refused to use Epicurus’ Greek terminology when many other Epicurean and Roman authors, such as Cicero, did so often and easily.

    There are countless available angles for viewing the cultural phenomenon that is Roman philosophy. Was it a regular part of the broad Roman negotiation with Greek culture, or did it emerge under its own peculiar dynamic and play by its own rules? To what extent do its literary manifestations, above all in the surviving masterpieces of Lucretius, Cicero, and Seneca, form a seamless whole with.

Studies in the philosophical terminology of Lucretius and Cicero / By Katharine Campbell Reiley. Abstract. Topics: Lucretius Carus, Titus., Cicero, Marcus Tullius., Author: Katharine Campbell Reiley.

Titus Lucretius Carus (/ ˈ t aɪ t ə s l uː ˈ k r iː ʃ ə s / TY-təs loo-KREE-shəs; Latin: [ˈtɪtʊs lʊˈkreːtɪ.ʊs ]; c. 99 BC – c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the philosophical poem De rerum natura, a didactic work about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which usually is translated into English as On the Nature of Things.

Drawing upon Lucretius Book IV, I argue that the Epicurean explanation of mental perception connects with two critical assumptions in Epicurean physics and epistemology, both of which Cicero challenges: their claims about the infinity of atoms justify a corresponding infinity of eidola of every object in every location; and their standards of.

Lucretius probably died about 54 BC, when Julius Caesar was beginning his career. He died young, when he was only about 43 years old. He probably died without finishing his great work, because even though it was published parts of it seem to be unfinished.

Cicero and Virgil, among others, read and appreciated Lucretius’ long poem after he died. Cicero has long been seen to embody the values of the Roman Republic. This study of Cicero's use of history reveals that rather than promoting his own values, Cicero uses historical representation to explore the difficulties of finding any ideological coherence in Rome's political or cultural traditions.

The book looks to the scepticism of Cicero's philosophical education for an understanding. Ambrose's book, On the Duties of Ministers, was based, in title and content, on Cicero's ethical book On Duties.

Augustine credited Cicero with his conversion to Christianity. This book explores Cicero’s moral and political philosophy with great attention to his life and thought as a whole. The author “thinks through” Cicero with a close reading of his most important philosophical writings.

Nicgorski often resolves apparent tensions in Cicero’s thought that have. Segal, C.P., Lucretius on Death and Anxiety: Poetry and Philosophy in the De Rerum Natura (Princeton ), –75, discusses important aspects of this passage from Book 3 in terms of the imagines on which Lucretius has chosen to focus, but does not raise this significant general point.

He is author of a book on Cicero's philosophy () and of the sections on scepticism in the new 'Ueberweg' (). He has also published widely on ancient languages and literature. Christoph Catrein, (), is Assistant Lecturer in the department of Classics at the University of the Saarland.

This book presents eighteen essays on the philosophers and schools of the Hellenistic and Roman periods: Epicureans, Stoics, and Sceptics. The discussion ranges over four centuries of innovative and challenging thought in ethics and politics, psychology, epistemology, and cosmology.

The focus is on the distinctive contributions and methodologies of individual thinkers, notably Epicurus, Zeno. Lucretius’ De rerum natura is one of the relatively few corpora of Greek and Roman literature that is structured in six books.

It is distinguished as well by features that encourage readers to understand it both as a sequence of two groups of three books (1+2+3, 4+5+6) and also as three successive pairs of books (1+2, 3+4, 5+6).

This paper argues that the former organizations scheme derives. the study of Lucretius has made considerable advances since Munro's edition: thanks largely to Dr. Brieger Cicero, the Augur, could discuss2 the fundamental assumptions of his art and arrive at a very unfavourable and philosophy, if it was to help the sceptical Roman, must be individual.

This book discusses Lucretius´ refutation of Heraclitus, Empedocles, Anaxagoras and other, unnamed thinkers in De Rerum Natura 1, Chapter 1 argues that in DRN I Lucretius was following an Epicurean source, which in turn depended on Theophrastean doxography.

The collection can be read as a companion collection to the two earlier volumes of Aëtiana published by the two authors. This book gathers together some of the most important and influential scholarly articles of the last sixty to seventy years (three of which are translated into English here for the first time) on the Roman poet Lucretius.

Lucretius' philosophical epic, the De Rerum Natura or On the Nature of the Universe (c BC), seeks to convince its reader of the validity of the rationalist theories of the.

The book begins (Part I) with a masterful study of the way Romans talked about the practice of philosophy. Harry Hine's study ('Philosophy and philosophi: From Cicero to Apuleius', chapter 1) of how the verb 'to philosophize' and the noun 'philosopher' were used by Roman authors illustrates the ambivalence they felt about self-identifying as.

Lucretius, who was born sometime around 99BCE, took Epicurus' philosophy, known as Epicureanism, and sort of injected it with anti-religion steroids.

He did this in his famous writing, De rerum. This book explores from different but mutually informing disciplinary viewpoints the rise at Rome in the first centuries BCE and CE of philosophy as a distinctly Roman mode of discourse; a central objective (albeit not to the exclusion of Greek philosophical writing at Rome) is to examine the ways in which, and the extent to which, the expressive capabilities of the Latin language gave.Introduction.

The De rerum natura (usually translated as “On the Nature of Things” or “On the Nature of the Universe”) is a Latin poem in six books composed in the mid-1st century BC by Titus Lucretius Carus to introduce a Roman audience to the philosophy of the Greek materialist thinker Epicurus (– BC).The loss of much of Epicurus’s own output means that Lucretius has become.Book 1 of De Natura Deorum exhibits in a nutshell Cicero's philosophical method, with the prior part stating the case for Epicurean theology, the latter (rather longer) part refuting it.

Thus the reader observes Cicero at work in both constructive and skeptical modes as well as his art of characterizing speakers.
