About This Item

1579 De Officiis CICERO Political Philosophy Paradoxa Cato Maior Venice FOLIO "A room without books is like a body without a soul." ― Marcus Tullius Cicero
Cicero's "De Officis" describes the best way to live, behave, and work. It also depicts Roman politics and way of life during the Roman Republic after the overthrow of Julius Caesar. This work is notably famous for being the third book ever printed and that "during the 15th-century, 'De Officiis' was the pinnacle of moral philosophy" (Baldwin, 590). This work was an important work in English schools through the start of the 18th-century and was a major influence on the works of John Locke.
In addition to 'De Officiis' this book contains other important works of Cicero including:'Cato Maior de Senectute' – 'On Old Age'An essay on the subject of aging and dying 'Laelius de Amicitia'Treatise on friendship'Paradoxa Stoicorum'on communication, wisdom, virtues, and need for happiness
