Summary
"Much as the Stoics have been talked about, but little justice has been done to either their literature or their history. Seneca, in whom, as Macaulay says, "there is hardly a sentence which might not be quoted," is, like Dion, the "Golden-mouthed," accessible to the English reader only in antiquated versions, scarcely to be found in the largest libraries. Their history has not, so far as I know, been fully written in any language. Such is the need of a book like this. Its first chapter speaks of the place of these philosophers in history. The next five chapters give specimens of their noblest sayings about religious truth and moral duty. These I have tried to render accurately, though freely, adding nothing, but omitting much. Of their commonplaces and errors I have made out no list. It is enough for us to see what truth Stoicism has still to teach. To show this, I have given in the last chapter some of their most characteristic discoveries in one of the most difficult, but important, fields of human thought. Thus I hope to be of service to the friends of moral culture and religious progress"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
