CICERO, Marcus Tullius
1552 ALDINE Cicero on Immortality Evil & Death Philosophy Tusculan Rome Bonorum
Venezia: Eredi di Aldo Manuzio, 1552. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "A room without books is like a body without a soul." ― Marcus Tullius Cicero Cicero was one of the most notable and prolific Roman figures of ancient Rome. His philosophical works and letters are considered the most reliable source of information for the period leading up to the fall of the Roman Republic. In the year 46BC, Cicero lost his young daughter, he was greatly afflicted and wrote an important treatise on his thoughts. 'Tusculan Disputations' or "Immortality of the Soul" was written to support, not only Cicero, but others in their pain and affliction that comes from death, as well as how to understand death and see it as a blessing rather than evil. This 1552 Aldine edition of the works of Cicero includes 'Immortality' as well as "De finibus bonorum et malorum", or 'On the Ends of Good and Evil', a philosophical treatise in which Cicero explains aspects of Stocism and Platonism.
