One of the golden periods in world philosophy begins with Aristotle and ends with the Roman and Alexandrian thinkers - Cicero, Seneca, Polybius, and Plotinus. Continuing in the Socratic tradition, these philosophers who immediately preceded and greatly influenced the Christian Era, represent the maturity and final sophistication of the ancient world. T. V. Smith, distinguished American philosopher and teacher, has compiled from the philosophical writings of this period one of the finest anthologies of pre-Christian Greek and Roman thought now available and has contributed to the volume his own brilliant comments about every philosopher and every major philosophical idea of the time.
