The author offers a wide introduction to Cicero's political and cultural world, and illustrates, by analysis of his imaginary dialogue between statesmen, how he introduced the principles of Greek philosophy and rhetoric into Roman education so that his work became the basis of humanist ideals in the Renaissance and Enlightenment.

Kultur-, literatur- und philosophiegeschichtliche Perspektiven

Lange als rein rezipierende und damit zu vernachlässigende Vertreter der antiken Philosophie angesehen, werden die philosophischen Werke von Römern inzwischen als ernstzunehmende Stimmen der von ihnen gepflegten hellenistischen Lehren wahrgenommen. Aus kultur- und bildungsgeschichtlicher Perspektive wird zudem vermehrt nach den Eigenheiten philosophischer Betätigung in Rom gefragt. Prägt diese Fragestellung inzwischen auch die Auseinandersetzung mit den einzelnen Autoren, sind Initiativen weiterhin rar, die solche autor- und werkbezogene Ansätze vergleichend aufeinander beziehen und zu einem Gesamtbild der Philosophie in Rom zusammenführen. Ausgehend von dem inzwischen akzeptierten Befund, dass die aus Griechenland importierte Philosophie in Rom signifikante Veränderungen und Weiterentwicklungen erfahren hat, nähert sich der Sammelband den zentralen römischen Autoren und Trägergruppen in komparatistischer Perspektive und fragt danach, welche Konsequenzen die spezifischen kulturellen Verständnisbedingungen in Rom für deren Auseinandersetzung mit der Philosophie hatten. Auf diese Weise entwirft er philosophie- und kulturgeschichtliche Kriterien, die die philosophischen Bemühungen von Römern als dezidiert römisch erkennbar machen.

Cicero's De Oratore is one of the masterpieces of Latin prose. A literary dialogue in the Greek tradition, it was written in 55 BCE in the midst of political turmoil at Rome, but reports a discussion 'concerning the (ideal) orator' that supposedly took place in 90 BCE, just before an earlier crisis. Cicero features eminent orators and statesmen of the past as participants in this discussion, presenting competing views on many topics. This edition of Book III is the first since 1893 to provide a Latin text and full introduction and commentary in English. It is intended to help advanced students and others interested in Roman literature to comprehend the grammar and appreciate the stylistic nuances of Cicero's Latin, to trace the historical, literary, and theoretical background of the topics addressed, and to interpret Book III in relation to the rest of De Oratore and to Cicero's other works.

Die Partitiones oratoriae und das Konzept des gelehrten Politikers

Cicero's brief rhetorical dialogue Partitiones oratoriae has hitherto been largely neglected by scholars. Unjustly so, maintains Arweiler, who analyses the text as an independent textbook of rhetoric. He conducts his interpretation with constant reference to Cicero’s great rhetorical works (primarily De oratore) and philosophical writings. Thus, rhetoric gives power over opponents in disputes, and consequently over political opponents. Against this background, the author shows how successfully Cicero projects himself in the Partitiones oratoriae as a 'scholar in politics'. In the eyes of his contemporaries, this dual function gave him a dominant role in Roman society and politics equal to that of Caesar, and it is no coincidence that Caesar dedicated his own linguistic publication De analogia to Cicero.
