Marus Trillius Cicero wore many hats in the Roman government. Cicero was a brilliant thinker and had a tremendous impact on John Locke, David Hume, Montesquieu and our founding fathers.

Cicero is particularly important because of his views of natural law, human nature, the importance of virtue and basis of law.
