Philosophical Pride: Stoicism and Its Influence on Roman Law

Charu Priyadarshi [2] | Simant Priyadarshi [2]

Abstract: This article explores the Stoic concept of natural law and its profound influence on Roman jurisprudence. The Stoics believed in a rational and purposeful order to the universe, where reason governed all aspects of life. They posited that all individuals, regardless of nationality or race, were endowed with reason and subject to the same universal principles. This belief system shaped Roman legal thinking, leading to the development of principles of equality, humane treatment, and the recognition of the inherent rights of individuals. This article delves into the historical evolution of Stoicism, its impact on Roman law, and its continued relevance in contemporary legal theory.

Keywords: Stoicism, Natural Law, Roman Jurisprudence, Universal Principles, Equality, Legal Theory
