Table of contents
David Sedley, Cambridge University
The Routledge Companion to Ancient Philosophy is a remarkable accomplishment for at least two reasons. It offers an exceptionally broad view of ancient Greek thought, from the pioneering philosopher-scientists of ancient Ionia down to the leading Neoplatonic thinkers and ancient commentators on Aristotle. It also features an outstanding set of contributors, most of them acknowledged experts on their topic with others who are authors of important recent work.
James Lesher, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
