Cambridge Companion to Early Greek Philosophy by A. A. Long

Book Description

The Western tradition of philosophy began in Greece with a cluster of thinkers often called the Presocratics, whose influence has been incalculable. They include the early Ionian cosmologists, Pythagoras, Heraclitus, the Eleatics (Parmenides, Melissus, and Zeno), Empedocles, Anaxagoras, the atomists and the sophists. All these thinkers are discussed in this 1999 volume both as individuals and collectively in chapters on rational theology, epistemology, psychology, rhetoric and relativism, justice, and poetics. A chapter on causality extends the focus to include historians and medical writers.

Books By Author A. A. Long

Free Will by A. A. Long Free Will, Paperback (January 2013)

Where does the notion of free will come from? How and when did it develop, and what did that development involve? This title offers an account of the history, the notion of a free will that emerged from powerful assumptions about the relation between divine providence, correctness of individual choice, and self-enslavement due to incorrect choice.

Shame and Necessity by A. A. Long Shame and Necessity, Paperback (April 2008)

Claims that while we are in many ways different from the Greeks the differences are not to be traced to a shift in basic conceptions of ethical life. This book argues that we are more like the ancients than we are prepared to acknowledge, and only when this is understood can we grasp our differences from them, such as our rejection of slavery.

Epictetus by A. A. Long Epictetus, Paperback (January 2004)

The philosophy of Epictetus, a freed slave in the Roman Empire, has been influential on Western thought: it offers not only stimulating ideas but also practical guidance in living one's life. This work gives the presentation of the thought of Epictetus. It is intended for those interested in what we can learn from ancient philosophy.

Stoic Studies by A. A. Long Stoic Studies, Paperback (July 2001)

The author has been at the forefront of research in Hellenistic philosophy. In this book, he assembles a dozen articles on Stoicism previously published in journals and conference proceedings. It focuses on three themes: the Stoics' interpretation of their intellectual tradition, their ethics and their psychology.
