Modes of Scepticism by Julia Annas

Book Description

The Modes of Scepticism is one of the most important and influential of all ancient philosophical texts. The texts made an enormous impact on Western thought when they were rediscovered in the 16th century and they have shaped the whole future course of Western philosophy. Despite their importance, the Modes have been little discussed in recent times. This book translates the texts and supplies them with a discursive commentary, concentrating on philosophical issues but also including historical material. The book will be of interest to professional scholars and philosophers but its clear and non-technical style makes it intelligible to beginners and the interested layman.

Books By Author Julia Annas

Developing the Virtues by Julia Annas Developing the Virtues, Hardback (October 2016)

This book features new essays by philosophers, psychologists, and a theologian on the important topic of virtue development. The essays engage with work from multiple disciplines and thereby seek to bridge disciplinary divides. The volume is a significant contribution to the emerging interdisciplinary field of virtue development studies.

Intelligent Virtue by Julia Annas Intelligent Virtue, Hardback (April 2011)

Julia Annas offers a new account of virtue and happiness as central ethical ideas. She argues that exercising a virtue involves practical reasoning of the kind we find in someone exercising an everyday practical skill, such as farming, building, or playing the piano. This helps us to see virtue as part of an agent's happiness or flourishing.

Plato: A Very Short Introduction by Julia Annas Plato: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (February 2003)

Focuses on the philosophy and argument of Plato's writings, drawing the reader into Plato's way of doing philosophy and the general themes of his thinking. This work discusses his style of writing: his use of the dialogue form, his use of what we call fiction, and his philosophical transformation of myths.

Cicero: On Moral Ends by Julia Annas Cicero: On Moral Ends, Paperback (August 2001)

An accessible 2001 translation of Cicero's important work on ethics.
