The Volokh Conspiracy
Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
I'm delighted to report that Ward Farnsworth, Dean of the University of Texas School of Law, will be guest-blogging this week about his new book, The Practicing Stoic: A Philosophical User's Manual, which the publisher summarizes thus:
The great insights of the Stoics are spread over a wide range of ancient sources. This book brings them all together for the first time. It systematically presents what the various Stoic philosophers said on every important topic, accompanied by an eloquent commentary that is clear and concise. The result is a set of philosophy lessons for everyone—the most valuable wisdom of ages past made available for our times, and for all time.
I much look forward to Dean Farnsworth's posts!
