This chapter summarizes key themes and presents some final thoughts. The book has attempted to show how reading Roman texts can reshape our habits of political thinking, our ethos of civic being. Beyond this goal, the author hopes that close attention to these texts has the capacity to reshape the way we think about civic wisdom—the way schools teach history, literature, civics, and philosophy—about public discourse, especially public commentary on political oratory, and about the conversations we citizens hold among ourselves. The book has sought to offer practical tools for civic education by articulating learnable practices of knowing the world that characterize late republican texts.

Keywords:   Roman political thought, ethos, civic wisdom, civic education, republican texts
