Overview

The Cambridge History of Hellenistic Philosophy offers a full account of the philosophy of the Greek and Roman worlds from the last days of Aristotle (d. 322 B.C.) until 100 B.C., and is as comprehensive as the often fragmentary evidence allows. The History has been written by specialists but it is intended to be a source of reference for any student of ancient philosophy, amateur or professional, for students of classical antiquity and for students of philosophy of later periods. Greek and Latin are used sparingly and always translated in the main text.
