Editorial Reviews

Review

"Christoph Jedan here demonstrates both the originality of the Stoic conception of virtue and its theoretical importance within the broader ambit of the school's philosophy. Prominent among the merits of this meticulously argued monograph is its insistence on giving the well-attested religious aspects of Stoic ethics their due weight." — David Sedley, University of Cambridge, UK

A generous survey of the context is provided [and] Jedan's [Greek] quotes are impeccable

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While acknowledging minor ethical differences between early Stoics, Jedan suggests there was “a core of common beliefs and a common outlook that defined what it was to be a Stoic.” He argues quite convincingly “the religious tenor of Stoic philosophy provides the key for an adequate understanding of Stoic ethics, not only across time but also structurally, by helping us to understand a number of counterintuitive and seemingly incoherent Stoic statements” (p. 2). Jedan does a brilliant job of emphasizing the religious character of early Stoic philosophy. Anyone who wishes to understand the connection between Stoic physics (including theology) and Stoic ethics will enjoy Jedan’s scholarly efforts on the topic of Stoic virtues.

The book does require a basic understanding of Stoic theory. However, it is not overly academic.

• Part One offers an introductory overview of the religious world-view of the Stoics.
• Part Two examines the Stoic characterizations of virtue and the virtues.
• Part Three deals with Stoic theories of how human beings can become virtuous.
• Part Four studies the practices of Stoic ethics.

I highly recommend this book.
