9780521349697: Epistemology (Companions to Ancient Thought)

This volume deals with Epistemology. The period from the sixth century BC to the second and third centuries AD was one of the most fertile for the theory of knowledge, and the range of 'epistemic states' explored in the ancient texts is much wider than those to be found in contemporary discussions of epistemology or cognition. Greek philosophers approached these problems in a great variety of ways, from the extreme relativism of Protagoras to the scepticism of the Pyrrhonists, and the contributors demonstrate both the familiarity and novelty of this range of views in their critical essays.

Book Description:

A broad range of epistemological views, from the extreme relativism of Protagoras to the skepticism of the Pyrrhonists, is explored in critical essays that span sixth century B.C. to the second and third centuries A.D.

Review:

"The essays are well written, learned, and philosophically sophisticated." Choice

"Overall, this is a fine collection of essays, one which can be read with profit either by a beginning student or by a scholar. The contributors discuss their subject in the best traditions of history of philosophy, showing knowledge of and respect for both ancient and modern traditions, without trying to make over either tradition in the interests of the other." Daniel W. Graham, Teaching Philosophy

"Everson's first volume must be judged an unqualified success, since it demonstrates better than any comparable anthology both the variety and philosophical sophistication of ancient epistemological discussions." Philip Mitsis, Classical World
