The Stoics on Lekta

All there is to Say

Ada Bronowski

Oxford Classical Monographs

  • Posits an utterly new global understanding of Stoicism by putting lekta at the heart of Stoic philosophy
  • Offers an in-depth examination of the notion of a philosophical system in antiquity, challenging the established interpretation
  • Discusses a vast array of texts from Plato, the Stoic corpus, Epicurus, later Platonists, and Aristotelian commentators, with implications that touch on almost all aspects of ancient philosophy
  • Compares and contrasts topics and themes with twentieth-century treatments of the status of the proposition, propositional structure, speech act theory, and the relation of attribution of the predicate to a subject-term
