Essays by an international team of scholars in Latin literature and ancient philosophy explore the understanding of emotions (or 'passions') in Roman thought and literature. Building on work on Hellenistic theories of emotion and on philosophy as therapy, they look closely at the interface between ancient philosophy (especially Stoic and Epicurean), rhetorical theory, conventional Roman thinking and literary portrayal.

Susanna morton braund and christopher gill. This has produced a number of excellent studies which can help scholars and students make sense of the Stoic and Epicurean theories of emotion and explore the issues that they raise. The book opens with a re-examination (and critique) of the Epicurean conception of anger by D. P. Fowler, analysed in part by contrast with the Stoic view of anger as a passion that should be removed or 'extirpated' completely.
