Cicero's philosophical works are a wealthy resource for the knowledge of Hellenistic philosophy, and his educational Books are of serious significance for the research of old epistemology, specially the principal debate among the tutorial sceptics and the Stoics. This quantity makes Cicero's demanding paintings available to philosophers and historians of philosophy and represents the simplest present paintings in either fields.
The ten papers released listed below are the paintings of top experts from North the US, England and Europe; they have been offered and mentioned on the 7th Symposium Hellenisticum at Utrecht, August 1995, and care for each element of the tutorial Books, old, literary and philosophical.
Several papers make significant contributions to the knowledge of historical scepticism and sceptical arguments, to the position of Socrates in later Greek suggestion, to the heritage of the Academy as an establishment, and to the philosophical stance of Cicero himself.
