The Stoics on Mental Representation and Content

A book-length study on the Stoic philosophy of mind.

The early Stoics (late 4th–1st century BCE) developed an extensive theory of mental representation and content, which are the ultimate source of our contemporary discussions of propositional attitudes and mental representations. In this monograph, I show how their theory evolved from a response to Plato's theory of Forms into a systematic account of the mental states of animals and humans, based on close readings of the primary sources in the original language.
