The present-day relevance of the Ciceronian tradition of political morality appears uncertain once we appreciate that one of the hallmarks of an intellectual tradition is the presence of an ongoing virtual conversation between members of the tradition—especially a dialogue between members of the tradition and its founder. But how can we speak of the continuing relevance of the Ciceronian tradition when Cicero, the founder of the tradition, is largely unknown today? The Conclusion maintains that if we focus more on the wide-ranging acceptance of key elements of the Ciceronian tradition of political morality than on the pervasive ignorance of the tradition’s provenance, the tradition is alive and well.
