John Sellars, The art of living: the Stoics on the nature and function of philosophy. Bristol Classical paperbacks, London: Bristol Classical Press, Second edition, 2009 (First edition, 2003). ISBN-13: 978-1853997242; viii + 228 pp.

This book places itself at the boundary between literary criticism and Ethics, an unusual combination proved here to be very fruitful. The art of living: the Stoics on the nature and function of philosophy is based on John Sellars’s doctoral thesis (University of Warwick, 2001). It first came out in hardback in 2003 and it is very good news for ancient philosophy and classics that monographs like his find a second life in paperback. Duckworth and their imprint Bristol Classical Press must be praised for their excellent decision to embrace this book and include it in their list. Apart from a short preface, the 2003 and the 2009 editions are identical, with even the pagination being preserved.
