    "In many passages, Cicero analyzes Stoic language in a precise, though polemical, way. Since a syllogistic style coexists with a more abundant one in the same speech, he wholly discredits Stoic rhetoric and declares that the philosophers of the Porch only possess one way of expressing themselves, the dialectical one, whose validity he contests both in the practice of philosophy, which he thinks is ineffective, and in the field of oratory, because such a style is fundamentally inappropriate to every possible audience. In De Oratore, Crassus analyzes Stoic philosophical expression from a rhetorical point of view, whereas he studies Academic and Peripatetic philosophical eloquence without examining if it would suit an orator. In Brutus, the eponymous character insists on the so-called unity and homogeneity of Stoic eloquence, both in Athens and in Rome, in philosophical conversations and in forensic, deliberative or encomiastic speeches. The description of Diogenes of Babylon's style by Antony confirms that Stoic language is restricted to dialectic, and thus unable to delight, to move or even to teach. It is also dry, obscure (because of a constant gap between res and uerba), useless as far as invention and topics are concerned, and above all, self-destructive. However, Stoic dialectic did have a heuristic function, and not only a defensive or an agonistic one."

    "Philosophy for Cicero implies not only a way of life taught orally in a school but also reading and writing. This foreshadows his influence on the later Latin tradition, which identified philosophy with the meaning and evaluation of texts, and ultimately replaced its conception as an autonomous way of life. I propose four factors in Cicero's influence: initiating the tradition of Latin philosophical prose; developing its vocabulary; the choice of a rhetorical over a dialectical mode; and locating discussion in the context of libraries, reading and book production."

    "The two moments of Cicero's methodology are invention and judgment, the discovery of things or arguments or symbols and their consequent testing, criticism or verification. His dialogues provide both, not by moving dialectically from oppositions to an assimilation of lesser truths into the greater, but by the perspectival discrimination of scientific formulations into their diverse frames of reference and uniting them into irreducible controversy. Controversy constitutes the universal method, and its product is probabilities. The rhetorical is distinguished from the philosophic as this single method is brought to bear upon particular cases (causae) or universal questions (quaestiones). The four aristotelian questions of inquiry transpose into the four questions of controversy, queries about facts, symbols, kinds, and pragmatic consequences. An example of their structural usage is found in Cicero's treatment of the gods."

    "Studies the evolution from Cicero's probabilism, through its rejection by Lactantius, for whom only Christianity can supply the indubitable truths required by philosophy; to Augustine's Academici. The ignorance of ultimate truth which, for Cicero, is the end result of philosophy, is for Augustine only the starting-point. Truth, being divine, is superior to the human mind, and can be known to us only through divine self-revelation."

    "In the Paradoxa Stoicorum Cicero tried unsuccessfully to bridge the gap that he saw between learned and philosophical discourse on the one hand, and popular discourse on the other. There is a tension in the work between this aim and the form he employed, the commonplace. Cicero learned from this experiment, and the Paradoxa was an important step in his philosophical and literary development."

  23. Erskine, Andrew. 2003. "Cicero and the Shaping of Hellenistic Philosophy." Hermathena:5-15.

    "Cicero stands closest in time to the lost works of the Hellenistic philosophers, and his are the first substantial philosophical writings to survive since the days of Aristotle. As a result Cicero has done much to shape the way in which we think about the Hellenistic philosophers. In his Tusculan disputations and in De officiis Cicero confronted problems of his own and looked to Greek philosophy for solutions. Cicero was no doxographer putting together tidy summaries; he was a man with strong opinions who turned Hellenistic philosophy into what he wanted it to be."

  27. ———. 1998. "Cicero, on Invention 1.51-77 Hypothetical Syllogistic and the Early Peripatetics." Rhetorica.A Journal of the History of Rhetoric no. 16:25-46.

    "In On Invention, Cicero discusses both induction and deduction. In regard to the latter, Cicero presents a controversy between those who advocate a five-part analysis of deductive reasoning and those who prefer three parts. The issue is not practical or pedagogical, but conceptual in nature. Cicero himself prefers analysis into five parts, and rather confusingly he presents the argument of the advocates of five parts as if it were his own. The argument is striking in that it makes elaborate use of mixed hypothetical syllogisms in order to argue for five parts. Cicero claims that the five-part analysis has been preferred by all who take their start from Aristotle and Theophrastus. A survey of what Theophrastus is reported to have said concerning the hypothetical syllogism renders Cicero's claim intelligible. That is not to say that Theophrastus himself advocated a five-part analysis. Most likely the association with him derives from his known interest in hypothetical syllogistic. Later rhetoricians who identified themselves with the Peripatos made the cormection with the founders of the school, thereby gaining authority for a controversial analysis."

  28. ———. 2005. "Cicero as a Reporter of Aristotelian and Theophrastean Rhetorical Doctrine." Rhetorica.A Journal of the History of Rhetoric no. 13:37-64.

    "This article is based on a general principle: the study of a fragmentary author should begin with a study of the sources. The particular subject is Cicero as a source for Theophrastus' rhetorical doctrine. The works On Invention, On the Orator and Orator are considered one after the other. The reliability of Cicero is tested by comparing what is said about Aristotle with what we read in the existing Rhetoric. Grounds for caution will be found. In the case of Theophrastus, we shall discover that Cicero does have value as a source, but his value should not be overstated. The reports are often quite general and sometimes they involve Ciceronian additions."

    "Cicero is well acquainted with Peripatetic philosophers from Theophrastus up to his own time. But he does not approve of their philosophical tenets and quotes them but rarely. Some general conclusions may be drawn as to Cicero's reliability as a "source author": Wherever Cicero cites his authority he may be trusted. More often, however, his statements about Greek philosophers (given in vague and general terms) are thoroughly tinged with his own philosophical convictions. Verbatim quotations of Greek 'sources' are to be found only where Cicero says so, explicitly. All other passages are of his own wording and should not be regarded as 'fragments'."

    " Philo is the first to use the Greek expression nomos tes phuseos frequently, but the same idea occurs earlier in Cicero. Both Philo and Cicero drew on a Stoic tradition, which was part of a broad movement of social-political philosophy. Antiochus of Ascalon, head of the Academy in the early first century B.C., was the key figure and the thinker upon whom Cicero and, probably, Philo depend. The Christian idea of natural law and the philosophical rationalization of Roman law derive from the transcendent conception of the law of nature."

    "What is the origin of the list of Topics in Cicero's Topics and other works? Aristotle's primarily dialectical topics were transferred to rhetoric and law, and Cicero's inept treatment suggests a Greek original designed for different purposes. The fifth-century Martianus Capella has a similar list and, separately, some propositional logic identical with that embedded in Cicero's list. Both may have a post-Chrysippean Stoic original. Boethius claims to give a list of topics from Themistius, but that is confused. Cicero's account of what a topic is may come from Theophrastus, but his sources are many."

    "La création par Cicéron du vocabulaire philosophique latin a été un acte d'une grande audace intellectuelle, à l'égard duquel Atticus et Varron ont d'abord été très réservés, pour des raisons à la fois culturelles et philosophiques. C'est l'élaboration dans les Académiques d'une terminologie fort complexe, destinée à rendre les concepts gnoséologiques stoïciens et académiciens, qui a renforcé la confiance que Cicéron a toujours eue dans les possibilités philosophiques de la langue latine. L'étude de ce vocabulaire (epoché, katalepton, sugkatathesis, ennoia, prolepsis) montre que, si le principal souci de Cicéron était de concilier précision et uarietas, il a néanmoins exprimé, par son choix ou sa création de certains termes, une vision du monde qui ne coïncidait pas nécessairement avec celle des philosophes grecs. La construction du concept de "probalble" à partir du pithanon et de l'eulogon confirme à quel point cette démarche aura été féconde."

    "Cicero held a complex position towards Middle Platonism. His masters, Philo of Larissa and Antiochus of Ascalon, each in his own way, had used elements which were to influence the emergence of this kind of thought. As for him, who inherited both of these teachings, he defines himself as a rigorous New Academic, but his work includes most of the ingredients usually considered as the theoretical core of Middle Platonism. The invention of qualitas has much to do with this situation. Apparently, this word is the exact equivalent of Stoic poiotés however, it is original insofar as it does not refer any more to the Stoic theory of principles, since the active power acting on matter is not identified with the pneuma any more. As he identifies qualitas with the qualified object, Cicero, through Antiochus-Varro, leaves room to the hypothesis that the world may not have a material origin."

    "La philosophie morale joue un rôle dominant dans la pensée de Cicéron. On a reproché à la langue qu'il emploie l'imprécision, l'équivoque et le manque de personnalité; on a souligné que le latin se prêtait mal à la transcription d'enseignements grecs. En réalité, la démarche de l'orateur est originale, fondée sur la mise en relation de la rhétorique, de la philosophie et de la romanité (dialogue et doxographie, langage et mores, esthétique et sagesse). Ainsi apparaissent, autour de la notion d'humanitas, un certain nombre de termes qui resteront fondamentaux jusqu'à notre temps."

    "L'esame della terminologia filosofica di Cicerone non seguirà il più comune e più noto ordine della tripartizione stoica (logica - fisica - etica), bensì quello che Cicerone stesso si è dato nel proemio al secondo libro del De divinatione, e su cui si è opportunamente soffermato P. Boyancé (1), e precisamente: problema della conoscenza (Academica), etica (De finibus e Tusculanae), fisica (De natura deorum, De divinatione, De fato); la logica, in particolare il suo aspetto di quaestio perÌ dunaton, si ricollega al De fato. Sarebbe, questo, un ordine che rispecchierebbe la successione di Antioco di Ascalona, secondo il quale l'etica precederebbe la fisica." p. 103.

    "An analysis is given of the 16 passages in Cicero's rhetorical and philosophical works where the names of Aristotle and Theophrastus are mentioned together. Cicero joins them together so often (1) because of his great interest in philosophical successions, and (2) because he regards the encyclopedic research carried out in the early Peripatos as an example to follow in his own attempt to present philosophy to a Roman audience."

    "Cicero's philosophical works represent two phases, the first from 56 B.C. to 51 when he wrote political philosophy as part of his active involvement in public life, and the second from 46 to 43 when, deprived of political influence by the course of events, he turned to ethics. In the prefaces to the works of the second period, he presents himself as motivated by a desire still to serve the state and by cultural competition with his Greek models. His reluctance to endorse the views of any one school was partly the result of his own sceptical leanings and partly a didactic principle."

    "This chapter explores the problem of Roman Latin-Creek bilingualism in the Late Republic. There is an abundance of evidence to show that Romans at this time knew classical Greek literature well enough. Some of them, like Cicero, knew key parts of it extremely well. Cicero himself was able to compose Greek prose and verse and to deliver set speeches in Greek before a Greek audience. No one would deny that he could speak Greek well. It is a commonly held view that Cicero's peers were fluent in Greek and regularly used it in conversation with each other. There are, however, no grounds for the latter belief. This chapter places Cicero's choices against the general background and function of bilingualism in Rome."
