This volume features fifteen new papers by an international group of scholars in ancient philosophy, with a particular focus on new work in ancient Greek and Roman ethics, epistemology, logic, and science.

Specific topics covered include the refutation of the hedonist in Platos Philebus, the question of whether modern interpreters are right to read Platos Timaeus as proto-historical, Aristotles argument concerning virtue, Aristotles discussion of practical reasoning in the realm of ethics, Aristotles logical theory, classification and division of goods in ancient ethical theories, and belief, appearances, and assent in Hellenistic epistemology.
