A quick note about "Stoicism and Emotion"
I'm not going to do a full post today, because I am at a conference and quite busy, but I did my daily Stoic reading, and I'd like to say that I am impressed by the way Margaret R. Graver's discussion of Stoic thought follows Stoic thought itself. For example, the ancient Stoics began with physics, proceeded through logic, and ended with ethics. Though it is the ethics that demand our attention, Graver begins with some of the relevant physics, both modern and as the ancients understood the issues.
