Summary

Classical Philosophy introduces readers to several of the essential philosophical questions raised by the Greek and Roman philosophers of classical antiquity. Featuring a thematic--as opposed to chronological--structure, this Oxford Reader focuses on philosophical problems and ideas rather than on historical circumstances. A general introduction places philosophers and schools within their historical context. Selections from the writings of ancient philosophers--some new translations--are interspersed with Terence Irwin's incisive commentary and at times with brief contributions from modern philosophers. Topics covered include natural philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, the soul, free will, moral philosophy, political philosophy, and religious belief.
