PHIL 551 - Intermediate Logic
In this course we take up Stoic ethics, both ancient Greek and Roman redactions. We consider the doctrines of the Greek founding fathers (Zeno, Cleanthes, Chrysippus,); some selections from the middle period, and then the works of later Stoics, such as Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, as well as Cicero’s redactions of Stoicism. The focus will be on ethics, with attention to Stoic responses to Aristotelian ethics. We will draw considerably from the plethora of recent work on the Stoics, including work of John Cooper, Martha Nussbaum, Julia Annas, Brad Inwood, Richard Sorabji, Margaret Graver, Tad Brennan, Nancy Sherman, and others.
