Description

This topically organized collection is intended as an introduction to the many varied voices of ancient philosophy that involves the reader directly in the issues. Rather than proceeding chronologically through different systems, the student engages with a variety of contributions to issues of continuing relevance. A wide diversity of areas, methods, and traditions is presented in a way that recaptures their original freshness. Annas provides substantial commentary on the reading that uncovers the main lines of argument and encourages students to think about problems. In addition she includes biographical sketches of the thinkers, a chronological timeline, and short discussions of the major movements in ancient philosophy.show more
