Justice and Generosity presents a collection of original essays by leading scholars on the social and political philosophies of the Hellenistic period, covering the work of both Greek and Roman thinkers such as Cicero, Seneca, Epicurus, and the Cynics. It challenges the conventional view of Hellenistic philosophy as apolitical, and offers a fresh and comprehensive guide to the main currents of social and political philosophy in a period of increasing interest to classicists, philosophers, and cultural and intellectual historians.
