Cicero's philosophical works are a wealthy resource for the knowledge of Hellenistic philosophy, and his educational Books are of serious significance for the research of old epistemology, in particular the principal debate among the tutorial sceptics and the Stoics. This quantity makes Cicero's difficult paintings obtainable to philosophers and historians of philosophy and represents the simplest present paintings in either fields.
The ten papers released listed here are the paintings of prime professionals from North the USA, England and Europe; they have been offered and mentioned on the 7th Symposium Hellenisticum at Utrecht, August 1995, and care for each element of the tutorial Books, historic, literary and philosophical.
Several papers make significant contributions to the knowledge of old scepticism and sceptical arguments, to the position of Socrates in later Greek concept, to the historical past of the Academy as an establishment, and to the philosophical stance of Cicero himself.
