About this title:
"From the beginning to the end of this compact but lucid book, Becker skillfully brings to life both the arguments and the intuitive appeal of stoicism.... In its essentials [the new stoicism] is recognizable, with its particularly astringent rational charm enhanced by Becker's focused and self-disciplined argumentation. Zeno, I suspect, would be pleased." --Brad Inwood, Apeiron
"A stimulating discussion of ethics that is free of the jejune or overly technical attitudes characteristic of much current writing on the subject." --Joseph Shea, n.b.: new from The Reader's Catalog
