    "Sic habeto, non esse te mortalem sed corpus hoc"Spesso gli uomini di epoche passate vengono ritenuti in qualche modo più arretrati di noi "moderni". Sicuramente questo ragionamento non può applicarsi alla filosofia classica che Cicerone intreccia con fluidità in questo testo interessantissimo. Fonte di molti spunti di riflessione e sorpresa alla vastità della conoscenza di civiltà che ci precedono di duemila (e più) anni!

    Extraordinario. Un libro para leer y releer, para reflexionar y darse cuenta de cuánto nos tienen aún que decir los clásicos como Cicerón. Por eso son clásicos, porque cada vez que los lees te dicen algo nuevo. Porque cuentan algo que sobrevive al paso del tiempo. Pese a lo que dice en esta obra, sí que hay hombres y obras cuya memoria perdura. Cicerón es uno de ellos.

    Un clásico, por supuesto. Tuve que leerlo para mi clase de Historia del Pensamiento I y en un principio no fue de mi agrado. Más adelante me tocó escribir un ensayo sobre él y tuve que releerlo dos o tres veces más, y ahí le encontré un gustito especial. Te hace pensar sobre la realidad política, en algunos casos, y con cada leída obtuve nuevas conclusiones y pensamientos varios. Muy buen texto.

    This title was not the actual edition I read, but the closest I could find on Goodreads; "Scipio's Dream" is available publicly: http://www.tertullian.org/fathers/cic...Absolutely profound, recommended meditation.

    Hmmm...think I enjoyed the challenge more than my cruddy chiasmus translations.

    A great, easy to use reader with facing vocabulary (and lots of it!), questions for consideration, and passages for comparison.
