Item Description...
Determinism and Freedom in Stoic Philosophy is a comprehensive study of one of the most important intellectual legacies of the ancient Greek world: the Stoic theory of causal determinism. The book identifies the main problems that the Stoics addressed and reconstructs the theory. It explores how they squared their determinism with their conceptions of possibility, action, freedom, and moral responsibility, and how they defended it against objections and criticism by other philosophers. It shows how the Stoics distinguished their causal determinism from ancient theories of logical determinism, fatalism, and necessitarianism. Along the way an authoritative account is given of many other related aspects of Stoic thought, including their views on the predictability of the future, the role of empirical sciences, the determination of character, and moral freedom. Bobzien's study of these central doctrines of Stoicism reveals the considerable philosphical richness and power that they retain today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Extraordinary scholarship  Aug 6, 2006
Determinism and Freedom in Stoic Philosophy is truly remarkable scholarship, illuminating, philosophically inspiring and highly recommended.

Bobzien traces the Stoic theory of causal determinism to its beginnings and discusses its connection with their views on freedom, action, and moral responsibility. The book is, however, more than a book on the history of philosophy; it is a book on philosophy and is, indeeed, philosophically rewarding.

This book is highly recommended not just for those intereseted in Stoicism, Hellenistic philosophy or Ancient philosophy generally, but also for anyone interested in contemporary debates about determinism and questions about free will.
