Studies in the philosophical terminology of Lucretius and Cicero


This monograph contains a valuable account of the philosophical terminology with which Cicero and Lucretius respectively enriched the Latin language. Dr. Reiley has examined the prevailing theories regarding certain technical terms that belong to the materialistic philosophy of Greece and Rome, and by an acute examination of the evidence, both ancient and modern have arrived at conclusions that constitute a distinct contribution to knowledge.
