The Stoics

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In The Stoics Diogenes Laërtius details the lives and philosophical opinions of the first Greek Stoic philosophers: 

Zeno of Citium 
Ariston of Chios 
Herillus of Carthage 
Dionysius the Renegade 
Cleanthes of Assos 
Sphaerus of Bosphorus 
Chrysippus of Soli 

Laërtius’ main sources were Favorinus and Diocles of Magnesia, but his work also draws (either directly or indirectly) on books by Antisthenes of Rhodes, Alexander Polyhistor, and Demetrius of Magnesia, as well as works by Hippobotus, Aristippus, Panaetius, Apollodorus of Athens, Sosicrates, Satyrus, Sotion, Neanthes, Hermippus, Antigonus, Heraclides, Hieronymus, and Pamphila. 

The Stoics provides fascinating insight into the private lives of the Greek Stoics, giving a voice to those early trailblazers whose influential works have long since been lost. 

Montaigne wrote that he wished that instead of one Laërtius there had been a dozen.
