About this book

The tradition of ancient philosophy is a long, rich and varied one. Julia Annas gives a succinct account of ancient Greco-Roman philosophy, emphasizing its freshness and variety of themes, and its approach of lively discussion and argument. Getting away from the presentation of ancient philosophy as a succession of Great Thinkers, the book gives readers a sense of the freshness and liveliness of ancient philosophy, and of its wide variety of themes and styles.

This new edition has been fully updated to reflect updates in the field, with new illustrations and up-to-date further reading to allow further exploration of the field. The text has been expanded and modernized to be more comprehensive and accessible to the general reader, as well as exploring the relation of the tradition of ancient Greco-Roman philosophy to other traditions and to us.


1. How to live a happy life
2. Humans and beasts: understanding ourselves
3. Reason, knowledge and scepticism
4. Logic and reality
5. When did it begin? (and what is it anyway?)
