(p.385) Conclusion
Creative Eloquence

Ingo Gildenhard

Oxford University Press

The conclusion brings together the findings of the previous chapters by relating the conceptual creativity in Cicero's speeches as it has emerged in the course of the book to the wider historical context in which he operated. The focus is ‘on the whole in crisis’, Cicero's philosophical fundamentalism, and his extremist rhetoric—as well as how these aspects of his oratory relate to the political culture of the Roman republic and its breakdown in civil war and tyranny.

Keywords:   civil war, crisis, fundamentalism, oratory, political culture, republic, tyranny
