Cicero wrote the dialogue De amicitia, which we are reading this Fall, in 44 BCE, just before and after the assassination of Caesar. Recalling his young years, when he was a student of Mucius Scaevola the augur, Cicero imagined, in this dialogue, an episode from his favorite period, the second century BCE, by way of having C. Laelius, the friend of the Younger Scipio, discourse on the joys this friendship brought him. Cicero described an ideal, the shared pursuit of virtue and virtuous desires, but he also thought that this ideal could and should find scope in public life. By way of comparing ideal and reality, we will be reading, alongside De amicitia, a selection of Cicero's letters which shed light on the practical aspects of friendship as pursued during Cicero's lifetime.

The text we will be using is Cicero, De amicitia, Introduction, Latin Text, Notes, Vocabulary, by H.E. Gould and J.L. Whiteley (Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers, Wauconda IL 1999). Copies will be available at Shaman Drum. The letters we will read will be available in a small course pack.
