Philosophy in the Roman Empire: Ethics, Politics and Society
Michael Trapp draws on a broad range of sources for this study of Imperial period philosophical thought. The distinctive doctrines of the many individual philosophical schools are outlined, as well as the choices they presented to the potential philosophical "convert." Trapp also addresses the elitist status of philosophy itself and the ways in which it may have posed a threat to other values.
