Physics, Ethics and the Unity of Stoic Philosophy

Project Details


The project addresses the natural philosophy of the Stoics, a Hellenistic philosophical school, founded in the early 3rd century BC. The connections between the study of natural philosophy and the virtuous life are explored with a view to assessing the means by which later Stoics in the Roman period adhered to school orthodoxy and continued to refine how the study of nature situates the individual from an ethical perspective. The physics of the Stoics is understudied area of ancient philosophy with important connections to earlier thinking on the rationality of the material world and modern discussions on virtue and character.
