`My present intention is to clear myself of any suspicion of partiality by presenting the views of the generality of philosophers concerning the nature of the gods.' Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest, in part because he provides vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first century Rome. The Nature of the Gods is a text of central significance, presenting a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and of the Stoics, together with the critical objections to these doctrines raised by the Academic school. When these Greek theories of deity are translated into the Roman context, a fascinating clash of ideologies results. This fine translation by P. G. Walsh includes a summary of the Text, and an Index and Glossary of Names. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

"On the Nature of Gods" presents two epic poems written by author juanantonio that explore love, loss, greed, and their transformative properties. The first poem, "Fallen Woman," tells the tale of an underworld god, Crystal Man, and his creation-a god-like woman and companion called Evening Star. Becoming her own person, she escapes, and he rampages through all time trying to find her. Both Crystal Man and Evening Star, along with the history of the world, are transformed by this epic struggle as they try to consummate their love. The second epic poem, "Flaco: The Demi-God and the Nature of the Gods," focuses on a demi-god, who through the love of greed and power, tries to control and devour his world-only to find that he has lost his way, rejected by an awakened Amanecer. juanantonio completes "On the Nature of Gods" with two short poems about life in Washington Heights, his home."

Cicero's philosophical works are now exciting renewed interest and more generous appreciation, in part because he provides vital evidence of the views of the (largely lost) Greek philosophers of the Hellenistic age, and partly because of the light he casts on the intellectual life of first-century Rome. Hellenistic philosophy has in recent years atrracted growing interest from academic philosophers in Europe and North America. The Nature of the Gods is a document of central significance in this area, for it presents a detailed account of the theologies of the Epicureans and of the Stoics, together with the critical objections to these doctrines raised by the Academic school. hen these Greek theories of deity are translated into the Roman context, a fascinating clash of ideologies results.
