It is easy to think of Roman intellectual achievements as inferior to those of the Greeks; indeed, Romans sometimes expressed such a view themselves. But in this survey of their writings, Kellogg reveals the richness of the Roman contribution to the tradition of Western thought. He focuses on ten authors, from the early comic playwright Plautus, through the philosophers Cicero, Lucretius and Seneca, to the historian Tacitus and emperor Marcus Aurelius in the 2nd century CE.
