MUSONIUS RUFUS

Postby Valerius Claudius Iohanes on Sun May 23, 2010 1:38 am

Salvete, qui legunt -

A new English translation of what is recorded of the Stoic teaching of Musonius Rufus, the teacher of Epictetus, has been released. It is by Ms. Cynthia King, and bears a preface by William B. Irvine, author of 'A Guide to the Good Life: the Ancient Art of Stoic Joy'. These are important Stoic documents that have not been easily available in English before.

Details below at link below:

Lego.

Salve Iohanes,

Have you read it? I'm planning to buy it but will hold off until I read any review that you might have.

No, I haven't read but a couple of cites from what survives from Rufus.

But now that that has been collected and translated, I'll certainly get it. It's required reading for the Stoic's Library! :wink:
