Reviews

"An effective antidote to the caricatures of Stoic theory which still infect the literary and philosophical world. . . . A New Stoicism is a fine contribution to the theory and practice of philosophical therapy."--Stephen R. L. Clark, Philosophy

"Becker makes a daring, creative use of the ancient Graeco-Roman heritage of the Stoa to outline a rigorously conceived, technically sophisticated, contemporary version of stoicism."--William O. Stephens, International Journal of the Classical Tradition
