Shelves: philosophy
Another oddly out of copyright book (pub. 1974) concerning Greek philosophy. Very effective introduction to Stoic philosophers and their ideas.

A certain positive: the book provides historical context on the thinkers. I actually learned much about Posidonius from this, despite years of familiarity with Stoic thoughts.

Presented in chronological order. Due to its copyright status, the book is available at Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/cu3192407...
