About the Book

Classical Philosophy introduces students 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. Selections from the writings of ancient philosophers--some new translations--are interspersed with Terence Irwin's incisive commentary, and at times with contributions from modern philosophers. Topics covered include natural philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology,
the soul, free will, moral philosophy, political philosophy, and religious belief. A general introduction places philosophers and schools into historical context for students.
About the Author:
Terence Irwin is Susan Linn Sage Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University. His books include Plato's Ethics (1995), Aristotle's First Principles (1988), Classical Thought (1988), and editions of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics and Plato's Gorgias.
