Margaret Graver's "Stoicism and Emotion"

Margaret Graver is Associate Professor of Classics at Dartmouth College.

She applied the "Page 99 Test" to her new book Stoicism and Emotion, and reported the following:
Page 99 of my book is concerned with whether Seneca and other ancient Stoics considered tears, turning pale and similar corporeal manifestations to be emotions in themselves or whether an additional judgment is always required. If this is the kind of question that interest you then yes, you'd probably like the whole book.
