Read full description of the books Treatises on Friendship and Old Age and Selected Letters:In this collection we find two of Cicero's philosophical treatises, "On Friendship" and "On Old Age." In Cicero's treatise on friendship we learn of his belief that true friendship with someone is derived from complete honesty, truth and trust. Cicero placed a high value upon friendship and saw it as a relationship of mutual benefit in which friends do things for each other without expectation of repayment. In a related philosophical writing on the human condition, the treatise on old age, Cicero writes of his views on getting older and ultimately death. In addition to these treatises a collection of Cicero's letters are included in this volume which will give the reader great insight into how he actually practiced his beliefs of friendship and the other values that he derived from his philosophies on the human condition.
