A new Rome


Carneades (c.214—129 BC) was a Greek philosopher who propounded convincing arguments for incompatible conclusions. In Rome, he defended traditional views on justice one day, and the next day eloquently refuted them. Unamused traditionalists had him kicked out, but they were unable to prevent the spread of stoicism.

Republican Rome, 184—130 BC.
