'... one should simply congratulate the editors, and Cambridge University Press, on bringing it to maturity. It is a fine, and authoritative, work of reference: a report written by specialists, but accessible to any student of philosophy, as well as of its ancient counterpart, or of classics - not least ... for its readability.' The Times Literary Supplement
This History is the definitive reference work on the philosophy of the Greek and Roman worlds from the last days of Aristotle (d. 322 BC) until 100 BC. Organised by subject, it includes sections on logic, epistemology, physics and metaphysics, ethics and politics and it presents the vigorous debate between schools which characterised the Hellenistic age. Written by leading experts in the field, the History is intended to be a source of reference for all students of ancient philosophy, of classical antiquity and of philosophy of later periods.
