Series: Issues in Ancient Philosophy
Throughout this book, the work of the ancients is set in the context of the most recent thinking about the nature and value of philosophy. It shows that there is much to be learnt from the ancient philosophers' views of the life of a philosopher.
`The freshest and most interesting aspect of the book is the plentiful reference to many contemporary philosophers … who also deal with the issue discussed; thus the contemporary relevance of ancient philosophy is demonstrated.' Choice
