Background The bibliography on the late Republic and on Cicero in general is immense. A recent useful guide to the political history will be found in Cambridge Ancient History vol. , ), particularly (for Cicero) the chapters by T. P. Wiseman on the period –. The most inﬂuential and eloquent modern treatment of the end of the Republic is R. Syme, The Roman Revolution (Oxford, ); also admirable are the various studies by P. A. Brunt, including Social Conﬂicts in the Roman Republic (London, ) and the articles collected in The Fall of the Roman Republic and Related Essays (Oxford, ).
Philosophers, in fact, say nothing (at least nothing that may be said decently and honorably) that does not derive from the men who established laws for states. What is the source of piety and religion? of international or civil law? of justice, good faith, and equity? of modesty and moderation, the avoidance of shame, and the desire for praise and honor? of courage in toil and danger? Surely they derive from the men who established such things through education and strengthened some by custom and ordained others by law.
The fundamental study of the sources and philosophical origins of the Dream remains P. Boyance´, Etudes sur le Songe de Scipion (Paris, ); his articles on Cicero, collected in Etudes sur l’humanisme cice´ronien (Brussels, ), contain much of value on Ciceronian philosophy as a whole. xxxiv Bibliography On the Laws Far less has been written about On the Laws than about On the Commonwealth, and less about the dialogue as a whole than about particular portions of it. A new commentary by A. Dyck is in preparation.
