About the Authors
  • The ancient Greek philosopher Antiphon was a contemporary of Socrates who lived in the fifth century BCE Athens. Antiphon wrote several major works, which have survived only in very fragmentary form. All that is known about these works as well as about Antiphon is included in this study. The material is translated, and its significance assessed in a detailed commentary that addresses the numerous problems raised by the fragmentary material. Antiphon's contribution to the wider history of ideas is addressed in conclusion.

    • Fuller collection of ancient evidence (in the original languages) than has previously been available
    • More complete English translation than has hitherto been available
    • Complete discussion of all philological, literary and philosophical problems

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a well-documented, helpful and sensible commentary which accompanies a text and translation which are of high quality. His edition is likely to become an indespensible work of reference for years to come." BMCR

    "This is a most impressive achievement, the first edition in English of the fragments of the Athenian sophist Antiphon...this is a splended edition, embodying both a vast amount of varied research and more or less universally sound judgement, and a most worthy addition to the Cambridge orange monographs." Ancient Philosophy John Dillon
