Philosophy 750: Hellenistic Stoicism

"Stoicism was the dominant philosophical school in ancient Greece and Rome for about 400 years. The contributions of the Hellenistic Stoics to philosophy of language, logic, formal ontology and ethics were seminal in western philosophy, and have been appropriated in contemporary philosophical work... We will discuss the positions and arguments of the early Stoics (3rd to 1st centuries BCE), as these survive in the sources collected and translated by A. A. Long and D. N. Sedley in The Hellenistic Philosophers, Volume 1: Translations of the Principal Sources with Philosophical Commentary."

Includes: "Notes on sections of Long and Sedley's text"
