Product description

Review

"Pierre Hadot deserves to be better known to English-language readers - and not just because he was a favorite of Michel Foucault's and is the man largely responsible for introducing Wittgenstein to the French. But it is more accurate to say that he is a philosopher who makes use of the ancients for his own ideas... In What Is Ancient Philosophy? Hadot brings all his concerns together in a small volume of extraordinary erudition and surprising... clarity of prose... It is the summa of a distinguished career." - Barry Gewen, New York Times Book Review"
