Product Description

Review

'… 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

Book Description

This 1999 History is the definitive reference work on the philosophy of the Greek and Roman worlds from the last days of Aristotle until 100 BC. With sections on logic, epistemology, physics and metaphysics, ethics and politics, it is an essential source of reference for all students of ancient philosophy.

Cambridge History of Hellenistic Philosophy 5 May 2000
By John P. O'Grady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
An impressive volume in terms of the depth and scope. A "must have" for anybody interested in the subject, and based upon the surge of books on Hellenistic philosophy in the last decade there will be a good number of people among those "must haves." Even though it is primarily a reference book, many will want to read it from cover to cover. One disappointment, however: the editors seem to disply the usual academic prejudices against the more "wayward" Hellenistic thinkers, such as those who gave serious consideration to astrology and magic. One would expect a fuller accounting of Hellenistic astronomy, at least, if the astrology is too much for them. The volume is also surprisingly neglectful (a mere five pages) toward mathematics and its relationship to the amply treated subjects of Logic, Ethics, and Physics.
