The present study centers on the distinctive characteristics of Cicero's philosophical training; for the first time in a volume, the Roman philosopher's relationship with Epicurean philosophy is accurately recreated. Not only does Cicero exhibit his lofty philosophical proficiency anchored in the Academic school, but he also proves an excellent authority on Epicurus's proposed philosophy.
