The subject of Philosophy and Politics in Cicero include, inter alia, the question of the true statesman, who is characterized by conduct that is based on common interest and the common good of the state. The statesman and philosopher, despite sharing the same views of the good of the state, however differ in the respect that the statesman embraces these values in his behavior and does not linger only in the world of theoretical considerations. Yet Cicero argues against the Epicureans and argues that philosophy should result in behavior and that any behavior should be theoretically based. This confrontation of philosophy and politics stands in the background of the work De republica by Cicero. We will be interested to know what the difference between statesman and philosopher in Cicero's work is.
