About the Authors
  • This comprehensive sourcebook makes available in the original Latin and Greek the principal extant texts required for the study of the Stoic, Epicurean and sceptical schools of philosophy. The material is organised by schools, and within each school topics are treated thematically. The volume presents the same texts (with some additional passages) as are translated in The Hellenistic Philosophers, Volume 1. The authors provide their own critical apparatus, and also supply detailed notes on the more difficult texts. This volume is equipped with a large annotated bibliography.

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… the Long and Sedley collection The Hellenistic Philosophers, now complete with the second volume … which includes the Greek and Latin texts briefly annotated and a huge bibliographie raisonnee of 655 items … will shape the study of ancient philosophy for at least the next generation. I cannot imagine what reader of Phronesis would not find life without it inconceivable.' Phronesis
