Leading figures in ancient philosophy present eighteen original papers on three key themes in the work of Richard Sorabji. The papers dealing with Metaphysics range from Democritus to Numenius on basic questions about the structure and nature of reality: necessitation, properties, and time. The section on Soul includes one paper on the individuation of souls in Plato and five papers on Aristotle's and Aristotelian theories of cognition, with a special emphasis on perception. The section devoted to Ethics concentrates upon Stoicism and the complex views the Stoics held on such topics as motivation, akrasia, oikeiosis, and the emotions. The volume also contains a fascinating 'intellectual autobiography' by Sorabji himself, and a full Bibliography of his works.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This huge volume of essays...is a fitting tribute to the prolific output that we have seen pour from the pen of Richard Sorabji over the last four decades...smartly produced. * Catherine Osbourne, The Classical Review *
The papers in this volume offer illuminating interpretations of the topics that have been at the centre of Sorabji's research all these years. They break new ground that will stimulate further discussion on these topics and highlight the lasting importance and relevance of ancient thinking for philosophy, which is a major concern in Sorabji's extensive writings on the history of philosophy. * Stasinos Stavrianeas, Rhizai *
Richard Sorabji is one of the most remarkable figures on the comtemporary scene in ancient philosophy ... This amazing career, itself enough for several lifetimes, is justly celebrated in this excellent volume... this is a worthy tribute to a great scholar and teacher. * C.C.W. Taylor, British Journal for the History of Philosophy *
