Damascius' Problems and Solutions Regarding First Principles, Hardback (November 2010)
Damascius was head of the Neoplatonist academy in Athens when the Emperor Justinian shut its doors forever in 529. His work, Problems and Solutions Concerning First Principles, is the last surviving independent philosophical treatise from the Late Academy. It has never before been translated into English.
Socrates, Hardback (June 2009)
Offers an introduction to Socrates, suitable for undergraduate students taking courses in Ancient and Greek Philosophy. This book suggests that it is in fact the Socratic insistence on self-knowledge that makes Socrates at once so pivotal and so elusive for the student of philosophy.
