A Written Republic:
Cicero's Philosophical Politics
Yelena Baraz

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"A Written Republic offers a new way of viewing Cicero's philosophical work. Yelena Baraz presents a unified perspective that embraces not merely a selection but all of Cicero's philosophical writings of the 40s BCE. There is nothing comparable within such an efficient compass. The focus on Cicero's prefaces is a new approach that allows his own voice to emerge. The scholarship is excellent, the organization is exemplary, and the writing is clear and often elegant."--Barbara Saylor Rodgers, University of Vermont

"This is an innovative study of Cicero's claims about the role philosophy could play in restoring stability to the post-civil war Roman Republic. Yelena Baraz argues that, for Cicero, philosophical translation was a patriotic act, a new form of political engagement necessitated in the mid-40s BCE by the demise of its traditional outlets. The book's focus is refreshing and its insights are excellent."--Cynthia Damon, University of Pennsylvania
