Before his premature death in 1982, Owen was a central figure in the study of Greek philosophy. The present collection includes all Owen's published papers. Owen himself planned the volume. There are 20 papers: 3 on the Eleatics, 4 on Plato, and 13 on Aristotle. Several are classics, e.g., the essay on the Timaeus , which proposes an unorthodox middle-period date for the dialogue and provides an important link in Owen's antiunitarian interpretation of Plato's development. Owen's work reflects a combination of close philological argument, sophisticated philosophy, and immense erudition. This collection is indispensable for anyone who wants to sample the very best professional scholarship on ancient philosophy. Richard Hogan, Philosophy Dept., Southeastern Massachusetts Univ., N.
