About this product
- DescriptionAncient Stoics repeatedly stressed the molithic unity of their philosophy. In this ground breaking essay Johnny Christensen takes their claim at face value: It is a presupposition of the present essay that Stoic philosophy is a coherent and consistent system of thought , he says, and The Stoic Philosopher is a man caught by the quest for unity. If this life is to make sense, all of it must be taken into account and somehow justified. Therefore Reality must be rational, t random, and organically one . In four concise sections, Christensen lays out the core ideas of Stoicism and their interconnection, never losing himself in details. The exposition is philosophically penetrating and lucid at the same time. Originally published in 1962, when it was far too modern for its time, this small but exceedingly generous study constitutes the most holistic grasp of Stoicism to date. Offering a deep appreciation of, and insightful meditation on, Stoicism, this study is required reading for anyone interested in the history of philosophy.
