Editorial Reviews

"Thomas Blackson’s Ancient Greek Philosophy is an introductory-level overview of philosophy from the Presocratic through the Hellenistic periods.  It would serve as an ideal companion for a Survey of Ancient Philosophy course.  B.’s prose is lucid and accessible, his interpretations of many of the texts are compelling and interlace nicely, and he provides informative footnotes and annotations.  This is a very useful book."  (Classical Review, 2012)

"Recommended.  Lower-and upper-level undergraduates."  (Choice, 1 May 2012)
