Early Stoic political philosophy is famous for adopting a cosmopolitan perspective. The Stoics do not confine their discussion to the constitution of one particular state, hut instead focus on the community of all human beings. Early Stoic philosophy is further associated with the origins of what eventually developed into the natural law tradition. The Stoics envisage a law that applies to everyone, a law that is fundamentally different from the various laws that regulate life in particular political states. The Stoics thus seem to develop two ideas— cosmopolitanism and the notion of the common law — that have been of major importance in the history of political thought.
  Early Stoic political philosophy is famous for adopting a cosmopolitan perspective. The Stoics do not confine their discussion to the constitution of one particular state, hut instead focus on the community of all human beings. Early Stoic philosophy is further associated with the origins of what eventually developed into the natural law tradition. The Stoics envisage a law that applies to everyone, a law that is fundamentally different from the various laws that regulate life in particular political states. The Stoics thus seem to develop two ideas—cosmopolitanism and the notion of the common law — that have been of major importance in the history of political thought. Like Plato or Aristotle, the Stoics discuss political ideas without actually marking a sharp distinction between ethics and political philosophy. What is more, the Stoics arc famous for putting forward theories that are all interrelated in very fundamental ways, and that all rely on a set of core conceptions such as reason, nature, and wisdom. The key notions of Stoic political thought — law, reason, nature, cosmos, god — are in fact highly relevant to all of Stoic philosophy. I shall thus attempt an interpretation of early Stoic political philosophy as a typical field of Stoic thought, a field that is deeply tied to other areas of Stoic philosophy. More specifically, I shall argue that early Stoic political philosophy contributes significantly to our understanding of the Stoic conception of wisdom, the relationship of theology and ethics as the Stoics see it, as well as the Stoic theories of appropriate action and of how we are to regard all others as belonging (o ike ion) to us.
  An important purpose of this book thus is to relocate early Stoic political philosophy — from the margins of what we perceive as early Stoic philosophy to a position closer to its center. The testimony regarding early Stoic political philosophy begins to make much more sense, and proves to be considerably more interesting, once we see how intricately it is connected with core Stoic ideas about wisdom, appropriate action, affiliation with all other human beings, god. and reason. And the core conceptions of early Stoic political philosophy—the conception of the common law, and the conception of the cosmic city—are much more plausibly interpreted if we do not think of them as located in some side-branch of Stoic philosophy, seemingly disconnected from the rest of Stoic thought, but rather as ideas that are integral to our understanding of such central concepts of Stoic philosophy as nature, cosmos, wisdom, and reason.
