                                    Review. Sara Ahbel-Rappe, The Classical Review
"[T]his survey cannot do justice to the depth of Long`s contributions over the decades, either in the form of this stimulating collection of essays, or in the many other ways that he has helped to make Hellenistic philosophy a required subject for every student of classics and philosophy."

A. A. Long, one of the world`s leading writers on ancient philosophy, presents eighteen essays on the philosophers and schools of the Hellenistic and Roman periods--Epicureans, Stoics, and Sceptics. The discussion ranges over four centuries of innovative and challenging thought in ethics and politics, psychology, epistemology, and cosmology.

In Stoic Studies I collected a dozen papers on the school`s ethics, psychology, and intellectual tradition that I had previously published in journals and multi-authored volumes. This book is partly a sequel to that earlier one by including a further set of essays I have written on Stoicism, but in this larger collection scepticism and Epicureanism receive comparable attention. In fact the book covers most of the topics in Hellenistic and Roman philosophy that have engaged my interest over the past thirty years. These topics include, most prominently, ethics, by which I mean not only moral theory but also the psychology of selfhood and emotion, social philosophy, and political thought. Besides ethics, the book discusses three other topics that particularly intrigue me — epistemology, language, and cosmology (which, in the ancient context, includes theology).These two studies are the only work in this book that has not had an earlier airing in periodicals or multi-authored volumes. However, I have edited and revised everything else, updating it where that seemed necessary and sometimes appending postscripts to indicate my later thoughts and subsequent bibliography. In deciding what to include in this collection, apart from the necessity to be selective, I have been primarily guided by the wish to produce a book that is sufficiently broad and accessible to interest general readers as well as specialists. My selection excludes articles of a largely technical character and work chat seems coo antiquated or too recent to warrant reproduction here. Many of these items, however, are included in the book s bibliography. (А.А.Long)
