Hellenistic Ethics and Philosophical Power

Hellenistic Ethics and Philosophical Power

(p.3) 1 Hellenistic Ethics and Philosophical Power
From Epicurus to Epictetus

A. A. Long (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The peculiarity of Hellenistic ethics is explored to understand its special significance. The issue is approached as a question concerning the intellectual history of Hellenistic philosophy in its formative years. A comprehensive answer would have to include subsequent developments of the Hellenistic schools, their reception at Rome, and their entry into the Renaissance. The focus of this chapter is the investigation of what it was about the ethical projects of the innovative Hellenistic philosophers that prepared the way for this curious legacy.
