The Stoic Idea of the City offers the first systematic analysis of the Stoic school, concentrating on Zeno's Republic. Renowned classical scholar Malcolm Schofield brings together scattered and underused textual evidence, examining the Stoic ideals that initiated the natural law tradition of Western political thought. A new foreword by Martha Nussbaum and a new epilogue written by the author further secure this text as the standard work on the Stoics.

"The account emerges from a jigsaw-puzzle of items from a wide range of authorities, painstakingly pieced together and then annotated in a series of appendixes, the whole executed with fine scholarship, clarity, and good humor."—Times Literary Supplement

Book Description:
The Stoic Idea of the City examines the political thought of the early Greek Stoics. It provides new interpretations of Zeno's Republic and of the later doctrine of the cosmic city, and an original analysis of the associated transition from republicanism to natural law theory. It offers students of classics and the history of political thought the clear and accessible introduction to the subject which has long been needed.
About the Author:
Malcolm Schofield is Professor of Ancient Philosophy at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of St John's College.
