Cicero’s The Nature of the Gods, along with his other philosophical works, are now exciting renewed interest and more appreciation. This is, in part, because they provide vital evidence of views of the (Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age. Also, they cast light on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. Furthermore, this edition of The Nature of the Gods uses the 1997 Clarendon text by the acclaimed translator P.G. Walsh.
Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman statesman from the first century, was convinced that the upright moral life was the happier life. The Republic became the blueprint of the U.S. government almost 2,000 years after it was written. In addition, Cicero uses The Laws to defend his understanding of the upright moral life and that becomes the foundation for the West’s philosophical discussion on the natural law. Studying such perennial works is a boon to everyone.
