This is the most complete, easy-to-follow, and explanatory edition of Cicero's On Duties available in English.
On Duties represents the pinnacle of Western moral philosophy. Not only is it an unmatched practical guide to conduct, but it also serves as a profoundly ennobling vision of man.
Acknowledged as a supreme moral authority for many centuries, it was the second book, after the Gutenberg Bible, to be printed following the invention of the printing press.
This new English translation by Quintus Curtius was specifically designed with the needs of the modern listener in mind. It reproduces the majesty and elegance of the original, while at the same time containing features found in no other edition.
Lucid, precise, and accessible, this complete and unabridged edition contains detailed commentaries, additional explanatory essays, and much more.
Quintus Curtius is an attorney, writer, and former Marine officer. He can be found at www.qcurtius.com.
