INTRODUCTION

in Western civilization. In this book we shall see some of the forms which it assumed,, and some of the individuals in whom it embodied itself, in the 500 years between the death of Alexander and the principate of Septimius Severus. Not all the forms nor all the individuals that represent it are worthy ; but as much must be said of the representatives of all creeds. It is at any rate characteristic of the changed role of Hellenism, that of the thirteen chief writers with whom this book deals, only three were born in Greece, and that the other ten include natives of Caria, Cappadocia, Mysia, Paphlagonia, Phoenicia, Syria, a Roman emperor, and a Phrygian slave.
We should commence by formihg some idea of the world with which this book deals. The time is from 300 B.C. to A. D. 200. The scene is at first Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean ; later, the Roman Empire.
Into the system of small states which formed the Greek world at the close of the fourth century B.C., there burst, like a rush of flood water into a quiet pool, the invasion of the Macedonian armies. The Greek cities lost, generally their independence, always their political importance. They became the satellites or the victims of the great kingdoms founded by Alexander's successors in Syria, Egypt, and Macedon. A new world order replaced the old. City states gave way to Empires. Intermittent wars and confusion lasted for 150 years, within which three great philosophies were born. For the political revolution drew moral revolution in its train. The brilliant political life of the Greek states was ended, never to return, and with it died the spiritual life which it had created and nursed. So long as the Greek city survived it provided its citizens with a bulwark of social life and religion. They needed nothing more-no independent creed, no theory of the universe to fortify their souls. The city and its religion was enough. But when the city collapsed the bulwark was gone and the Greek world was defenceless against life. To defend it arose the philosophies of Cynicism, Stoicism, and Epicureanism, which offered during three tempestuous centuries an armour for the battle, a port in the storm., The world unrest, which commenced with the founding of the 'Macedonian Empire at the close of the fourth century, lasted
