The Blackwell Guide to Ancient Philosophy

The Blackwell Guide to Ancient Philosophy provides a comprehensive treatment of the principal figures and movements of philosophy from its origins before Socrates, through the towering achievements of Plato and Aristotle, and into its final developments in late antiquity.

Authored by a cast of distinguished philosophers, this collection offers in-depth, accessible essays on the Presocratics, the Sophistic Movement, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, the principal Hellenistic schools – Epicureanism, Academic Skepticism, and Stoicism – and, finally, the often neglected Neoplatonists.

Featuring a comprehensive bibliography of primary and secondary recommended works for each of its topics, this Guide is an indispensable resource for the study of ancient philosphy.
