I am conscious of a certain audacity in thus attempting to give a further life of Cicero which I feel I may probably fail in justifying by any new information; and on this account the enterprise though it has been long considered has been postponed so that it may be left for those who come after me to burn or publish as they may think proper; or should it appear during my life I may have become callous through age to criticism.

Excerpt from The Life of Cicero, Vol. 1 of 2 It has been the habit of some latter writers, who have left to Cicero his literary honours, to rob him of those which had been accorded to him as a politician. Macaulay, expressing his sqrise at the fecundity of Cicero, and then passing on to the praise of the Philippics as senatorial speeches, says Of him that he seems to have been at the head of the 'i' minds Of the second order. We cannot judge of the classification without knowing how many of the great men of the world are to be included in the first rank. But Macaulay probably intended to express an opinion that Cicero was inferior be; cause he himself had never dominated others as Marius had done, and Sylla, and Pompey, and Caesar, and Augustus. But what if Cicero was ambitious for the good of others while these men had desired power only for themselves!

Excerpt from Life of Marcus Tullius Cicero, Vol. 1 of 2 My object has been to exhibit Cicero not only as an orator and a politician, but as he was in private life, surrounded by his family and fi'iends speaking and acting like other men in the ordinary affairs of home. And the more we accustom ourselves to re gard the ancients as persons of like passions as our selves, and familiarize ourselves with the idea of them as fathers, husbands, friends, and gentlemen, the better we shall understand them.

Cicero S Practical Philosophy

Author : Walter Nicgorski
ISBN : 9780268158118

Cicero’s Practical Philosophy marks a revival over the last two generations of serious scholarly interest in Cicero’s political thought. Its nine original essays by a multidisciplinary group of distinguished international scholars manifest close study of Cicero’s philosophical writings and great appreciation for him as a creative thinker, one from whom we can continue to learn. This collection focuses initially on Cicero’s major work of political theory, his De Re Publica, and the key moral virtues that shape his ethics, but the contributors attend to all of Cicero’s primary writings on political community, law, the ultimate good, and moral duties. Room is also made for Cicero’s extensive writings on the art of rhetoric, which he explicitly draws into the orbit of his philosophical writings. Cicero’s concern with the divine, with epistemological issues, and with competing analyses of the human soul are among the matters necessarily encountered in pursuing, with Cicero, the large questions of moral and political philosophy, namely, what is the good and genuinely happy life and how are our communities to be rightly ordered. The volume also reprints Walter Nicgorski’s classic essay “Cicero and the Rebirth of Political Philosophy,” which helped spark the current revival of interest in Cicero the philosopher.
