Philosophy in the Ancient World: An Introduction-an intellectual history of the ancient world from the eighth century B.C.E. to the fifth century C.E., from Homer to Boethius-describes and evaluates ancient thought in its cultural setting, showing how it affected and was affected by that setting. The greatest philosophers (Parmenides, Plato, Aristotle, Augustine) and cultural figures (Homer, Euripides, Thucydides, Archimedes) and a number of lesser ones (Hesiod, Posidonius, Basil) receive careful description and evaluation. Philosophy in the Ancient World is ideally suited as a supplement for undergraduate courses in Ancient Philosophy and the History of Philosophy in the West.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A clear, engaging, and insightful presentation of the thinkers and ideas that shaped the foundations of philosophical inquiry. -- Steven M. Cahn
... an admirable introduction to Greek philosophy and... an excellent companion to the ancient texts. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
James Arieti's Philosophy in the Ancient World is an excellent companion to primary source readings by the ancient philosophers. Among the book's many virtues are the excellent, creative, and thought-provoking discussion questions provided at the end of each chapter, which encourage the reader to reflect on the significance of the ideas being discussed. -- William F. Lawhead, Author, The Philosophical Journey
