This book is the fruit of an effort to make sense of Cicero’s moral and political philosophy. It attends to his overall thinking as well as his actions. It, thus, contributes to making sense of Cicero. It builds on a renaissance in Cicero studies and a renewed respect for him as a thinker. It examines, and sometimes resolves, apparent tensions in his thought that have often posed obstacles to appreciating his philosophy. Chief among these tensions are those between his Academic skepticism and apparent Stoicism, between his commitment to philosophy and to rhetoric and oratory, between his attachment to Greek philosophy and his profound engagement in Roman culture, between theory and practice, and between right and expediency as a chief good. Cicero’s recovery of Socratic political philosophy in Roman garb is, then, the basis for our recovery of Cicero as a notable political thinker relevant to the present.
