Ethics

(1,482 words)

Author(s): Inwood, Brad (Toronto)
[German version] A. Background In antiquity ethics was the concern to establish what disposition of character is best for mankind. That consideration began with the Homeric ideal of ‘being a speaker of words and a doer of deeds’ (Hom. Il. 9,443). Critical thought about character made progress in the 5th cent. BC, often embedded deeply in a political context. The earliest research on man's character concentrated most of all on his role as a citizen. Democritus' work ‘On rest’ seems by contrast to have focussed on the private and personal aspect. Inwood, Brad (Toronto) [German version] B. Th…

Stoicism

(2,473 words)

Author(s): Inwood, Brad (Toronto)
[German version] I. History Stoicism was an intellectual movement rooted in an Athenian school of philosophy founded by Zeno [2] of Citium in the late 4th cent. BC; it took its name from the place where Zeno's lessons were held, the Stoá Poikílē ('painted collonade', Stoa [1]), and developed most significantly by its next two leaders, Cleanthes [2] of Assus and Chrysippus [2] of Soli. It flourished primarily within the context of the school at Athens until the sack of the city by Roman forces in 86 BC; besides Athens, Rhodes was also an…
