Reviews

"[Musonius Rufus] deserves to be more widely read, especially by people looking to Stoicism for guidance today."--John Sellars, author of The Pocket Stoic
"The work of Musonius Rufus offers a guide to living meaningfully through the practical application of philosophy. Gretchen Reydams-Schils provides a lucid and incisive introduction to Cora Lutz's classic translation of this fascinating Stoic thinker."--Liz Gloyn, Royal Holloway, University of London
"Given the explosion of interest in Stoicism from many quarters, it is important to make a fuller selection of sources more widely available."--Kurt Lampe, University of Bristol
"Not as well known as his most famous pupil, Epictetus, Musonius is a practical philosopher who offers helpful advice on a range of everyday concerns. He deserves to be more widely read, especially by people looking to Stoicism for guidance today."--John Sellars, author of Lessons in Stoicism
