    Testi originali con introduzione e traduzione commentata. (Otto volumi in dieci tomi. Il nono volume: a) Indice terminologico; b; Bibliografia sui testi e sugli studi; Conclusione critica sulle interpretazioni della logica stoica, non è mai stato pubblicato).

    I. Introduzione alla logica stoica (1984); II. Crisippo: il catalogo degli scritti e i frammenti dai papiri (1985); III. Diogene Laerzio (Dalle Vite dei filosofi VII) (1986); IV.

    "Il presente lavoro tenta una ricostruzione sintetica della logica stoica considerata nei suoi rapporti storici e nella sua cornice sistematica: non è pertanto una interpretazione della logica stoica nella prospettiva della logica moderna né propriamente una esposizione di un momento della storia della logica, bensì intenderebbe presentare un momento della storia della filosofia.

    In particolare, esso nasce da un decennale contatto con tutte le fonti antiche relative alla logica stoica e vuole introdurre alla lettura di tali fonti. I testi di Crisippo, di Diogene Laerzio, di Sesto Empirico, dei commentatori di Aristotele (innanzitutto di Alessandro di Afrodisia), di Cicerone, degli scrittori del sec. Il d.C. che ci informano sulla logica stoica (innanzitutto di Galeno) sono stati raccolti, ordinati per autore e vagliati, nonché tradotti e commentati; sono state anche raccolte e ordinate secondo il contenuto secondo il quale si sviluppa l'esposizione nel presente lavoro le testimonianze che si trovano sparse nei più vari autori (anche negli autori che si potrebbero ritenere scarsamente significativi), e sono state anch'esse tradotte e commentate."

BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON STOICISM

  1. Egli, Urs. 1979. "Bibliographie Zur Stoischen Sprachwissenschaft (Dialektik)." In Die Grammatik Der Stoiker, 182-216. Braunschweig: Vierweg & Sohn.

    Appendix to the German translation by Karlheinz Hülser of: Rudolf Traugott Schmidt, Stoicorum grammatica, Halle, 1839.

  2. Epp, Ronald H. 1985. Stoicism Bibliography. In Southern Journal of Philosophy

    Recovering the Stoics. Spindel Conference 1984.

    1169 titles.

    "This bibliography cites the most important secondary literature on Stoic philosophy. It is not exhaustive in part because the term Stoic has such a bastardized legacy.

    What has been selected are important contributions to the Stoic tradition as theory and practice. This literature is concentrated in a half dozen modern European languages accessible to English language scholars, and is largely confined to the twentieth century.

    A generous sense of what is philosophical has been employed; works that are exclusively historical, philological, or literary have been excluded. The following forms of scholarship were generally ignored:

    (a) primary sources, translations, and commentaries, (b) encyclopedia and dictionary entries, (c) dissertations, (d) book reviews, and (e) standard histories.

    Several oddities should be noted. All serials titled by a single term (e.g. Phronesis) will be fully cited, whereas multi-term serials (e.g. Classical Quarterly) are abbreviated according to L'Annee Philologique, and listed here with other serials on pages 126-13 1. Since rules of capitalization are varied, I have favored a minimalist approach, and when the work of a single author is collected (e.g. Max Pohlenz's Kleine Schriften), a single citation replaces the separate citations contained therein. Indexes of key English and selected Greek subjects complete user access to this bibliography, and regrettably indexes to Latin terms and the primary literature could not be included." (From the Preface by R. H. Epp).

En revanche, nous regroupons ici, par ordre alphabétique des noms des auteurs, les références complètes des études qui ont été mentionnées, sous forme abrégée, dans les compléments apportés aux textes et aux notes par les auteurs et réviseurs de la présente deuxième édition; nous y ajoutons quelques publications récentes particulièrement marquantes. On ne trouvera donc dans ce qui suit, sauf exceptions justifiées par leur importance, que des titres publiés depuis 1976."
