“This Companion does a good job of introducing students to the study of ancient philosophy…This book will give students a sense of what working in the area of ancient philosophy involves and may encourage them to develop some of the requisite skills themselves rather than simply furnish another source for regurgitation.” (The Classical Review, Vol 58 No. 1 2008) "[T]he Companion draws together a wealth of material, presented in accordance with the most recent scholarly standards for the interpretation of ancient philosophical texts. The Companion will be an excellent source-book for students interested in the study of ancient philosophy, as well as for scholars who are rethinking their views on well-known problems by considering the new perspectives offered." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

A Companion to Ancient Philosophy provides a comprehensive and current overview of the history of ancient Greek and Roman philosophy from its origins until late antiquity. This volume of newly contributed papers is distinctive in including contributions from both rising stars and senior scholars, and in integrating what were until recently characterized as two conflicting traditions, analytic and continental. The papers treat central topics in ancient philosophy, such as the problem of sources or the practice of ancient philosophical commentary, and also explore the development of various disciplines, including mathematics, logic, grammar, physics, and medicine, in their relation to ancient philosophy. Each paper informs the reader of the current state of debate concerning its topic, and pushes the dialogue further by expressing the views of its author. The volume features a lively introduction, bibliographies, chronology, maps, and two indexes, making this book an excellent resource for students and scholars alike. Non-specialists will find this Companion accessible and rewarding, while specialists will be inspired to revisit controversial questions anew.
"A Companion to Ancient Philosophy is an extremely valuable aid for those interested in the study of ancient philosophy. The articles, written by leading figures in the field, provide the reader with a clear picture of the state of contemporary scholarship on all aspects of philosophy in the ancient world." –Daniel Devereux, University of Virginia "This is an essential book not only for its information content, but equally importantly, for its elucidation of research methodology. It offers something fresh and original even to those who have studied the field for a lifetime." –Enrico Berti, Università degli Studi di Padova
