Reviews

The publication of a Loeb Classical Library edition of the evidence for early Greek philosophy is a major event in classical scholarship...The editors and their assistants are to be commended for their exemplary execution of such a vast and difficult task. They have succeeded in producing what is far and away the best available edition of the texts of the early Greek philosophers with accompanying English translation...More than that, their edition effectively supersedes Hermann Diels and Walter Kranz's Die Fragmente der Vorsokratiker, which has long held sway as the standard edition of the Presocratics, but it only does so because Laks and Most have respectfully taken Diels-Kranz as their model...Laks and Most have set such a high standard with this work that it is hard to imagine that we will see a better general collection on early Greek philosophy in our lifetimes...Laks and Most's philological acumen, judiciousness as editors, and excellence as translators is evident on every page.--John Palmer"Arion" (02/01/2018) Andr Laks and Glenn W. Most have made available to the world of scholarship in early Greek philosophy a resource of immense value. Every study of a thinker or of an issue within the thematic ambit of Early Greek Philosophy must henceforth start by canvassing and taking into account the appropriate selections in the Loeb set.--Alexander P. D. Mourelatos"Bryn Mawr Classical Review" (03/15/2018) The publication of the Loeb Classical Library's nine-volume set, Early Greek Philosophy, gives us a new edition of the original texts, with fresh translations. It is a monumental achievement--the result of many years of dedicated work on the part of the two editors/translators Andr Laks and Glenn W. Most... We owe a profound debt of gratitude to the editors/translators for their thorough and impeccable scholarship, and to the publishers for their usual high standards of production. If you can afford them, don't hesitate: you will be all the richer for having these volumes on your shelves.--Jeremy Naydler"Minerva" (03/01/2017) In brief, Andr Laks and Glenn Most give us a brilliant and beautiful reference work that can, at the same time, be easily enough read straight through. And spending a few months doing so gives the reader almost all that she needs (perhaps along with Loeb #258, Greek Elegiac Poetry) to reconstruct for herself the origins of the discipline of philosophy. I should want any graduate student or colleague in ancient philosophy or intellectual history to acquire and make their way through it.--Christopher Moore"Classical Journal" (12/10/2017)
