Physics of the Stoics Book Description: Stoic physics, based entirely on the continuum concept, is one of the great original contributions in the history of physical systems. This book gives an account of the physical doctrine of the Stoics, all the aspects of which were based on a rigorous continuum conception. The main outlines of Stoic physics were briefly given in my earlier book The Physical World of the Greeks, especially in chapter VI (The World of the Continuum) and chapter VII (The Interdependence of Things). Building on The Physical World of the Greeks, the author describes the main aspects of the Stoic continuum theory, traces its origins back to pre-Stoic science and philosophy, and shows the attempts of the Stoics to work out a coherent system of thought that would explain the essential phenomena of the physical world by a few basic assumptions.

The main outlines of Stoic physics were briefly given in my earlier book The Physical World of the Greeks, especially in chapter VI (The World of the Continuum) and chapter VII (The Interdependence of Things). In the present study I have tried to give a more detailed exposition of Stoic physics. The Cosmos. Diogenes tells us that the Stoic physics had three general divisions: the investigation of the cosmos, of the elements that make up the cosmos, and causal explanations of what occurs within the cosmos (). We shall begin with a description of the cosmos as such.
