    Cicero and Hierocles on Distinguishing the People in Our Lives. One way we can study this is through a well-known idea forwarded by the 2nd century Stoic, Hierocles. Our record of Hierocles’ work is often fragmented, and largely conveyed via the ancient compiler Stobaeus. This volume is a revised translation of the complete text of Book Seven about Zeno of Citium and the Stoics, taken from The Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers written around AD by the Graeco-Roman author Diogenes Laertius. The Life of Zeno is accompanied by a complete summary of Stoic philosophy, addressing the three branches of.

    Stoic Quotes on Nature and the Universe. All art is but imitation of nature. Seneca (Letters from a Stoic - Letter LXV: On the First Cause) There is one great law throughout nature. Cleanthes (Hymn to Zeus) The universe is transformation: life is opinion. Marcus Aurelius (Meditations - Book IV, A.C.E.). Practical aspects of Stoic cosmopolitanism, from Cicero and Hierocles (x-post r/historyofideas) Good discussion of the lesser-known classical Stoic, Hierocles, and our duties to the concentric circles of family, friends, the nation, and all humanity.

    Hierocles, in particular, stressed the idea that we should bring the circles of concern inward to reflect the healthy aspects of humanity that constitute the self and the self’s role in humanity. In doing, this Stoicism provides the foundation for a society built on harmony instead of populism. Crucial to Gloyn's analysis is a well-known image from the Stoic Hierocles (2 nd c. AD, preserved in Stobaeus ) that presumably maps the notion of appropriation (though not mentioned in that passage) onto a set of concentric circles. At the center is one's mind surrounded by the circle that contains one's body, followed by another.
