    Description & More Details

    Cicero's De Amicitia discusses the meaning of true friendship as illustrated by the relationship between the historical personages, Laelius sapiens and Scipio Aemilianus. His discourse is also informed by his own readings of Greek philosophy and his personal experience of friendship. The notes facing each page of text facilitate a very manageable reading of the Latin for a college level introduction to Cicero's essays.
