French and Italian Stoicisms: From Sartre to Agamben

Kurt Lampe, Janae Sholtz (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book


While the influence of Stoicism both inside and outside the academy has exploded in the last two decades, most notably with the "modern Stoic" movement, the variety and power of continental approaches to the ancient texts remains unexplored. This volume both maps that new field of reception history and attempts to clarify and expand the philosophical significance of these readings. I am the principal editor for this volume, wrote the synoptic introduction and one of its chapters, translated two chapters into English, and co-translated two other chapters (all from French).
