Voices of Ancient Philosophy by Julia Annas
Book DescriptionThis topically organized collection is intended as an introduction to the many varied voices of ancient philosophy that involves the reader directly in the issues. Rather than proceeding chronologically through different systems, the student engages with a variety of contributions to issues of continuing relevance. A wide diversity of areas, methods, and traditions is presented in a way that recaptures their original freshness. Annas provides substantial commentary on the reading that uncovers the main lines of argument and encourages students to think about problems. In addition she includes biographical sketches of the thinkers, a chronological timeline, and short discussions of the major movements in ancient philosophy.

Books By Author 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, Paperback (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, Paperback (February 2003)
