Der Vegetarismus in der Antike im Streitgespräch

In this book two discussions contained in Porphyry’s De Abstinentia are investigated. Both of them deal with an often forgotten aspect of antiquity: vegetarianism. First, the connections between the fragments Against the Vegetarians and On Piety are pointed out. Afterwards it is shown how Porphyry, in an open debate with the Stoics, develops a spatial terminology to present his own ethics.
