Cicero on Life - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 80
Life/Cicero/Höffe: in the most extensive first preface(1) Cicero advocates a vita activa, an active-political life dedicated to the good of civitas (citizenship). Surprisingly, Cicero, after all also an active politician, does not consider the vita activa, but the theoretical life, the preoccupation with the eternal and divine, to be the highest. However, the relevant knowledge does not appear to be an end in itself, but is placed in military-political service.
