Promotional Information

Hegel's verdict on the apolitical character of philosophy in the Hellenistic age is challenged in these essays, originally presented at the sixth meeting of the Symposium Hellenisticum.


"All contributions are worthwhile treatments of substantive questions and deserve attention from scholars and students. Despite the wide range of interest represented here, the volume is surprisingly coherent in showing that hellenistic philosophers were much more interested in the city-state than is sometimes supposed."
