John Sellars presents a broad and lively introduction to Hellenistic philosophy (c.330-30 BC). This was a rich period for philosophy, with the birth of Epicureanism and Stoicism, alongside the activities of Platonists, Aristotelians, and Cynics. Sellars offers accessible coverage of all areas from epistemology to ethics and politics.
