Arrien philosophe stoïcien

Abstract : Arrian is more often considered as an historian, an administrator of the Roman Empire and a commander of the Roman army than a philosopher. But we must not deny him the status of philosopher by arguing that he didn't teach this discipline. First of all, the transmission of his stoic master's teaching, Epictetus, implies a great part of personal composition. In the second place, honorific inscriptions prove that he deserved in his time, by his career as well as his way of life, the title of "philosopher". Thirdly, in Antiquity, philosophy was not a matter of professionals. Arrian's Array against the Alans shows what sort of benefit could be obtained from a serious philosophical training.
