The Philosophy of Antiochus

  • "This book is not The Cambridge Companion to Antiochus. Although the distribution of chapter topics attempts to cover all the major aspects of Antiochus' work and significance, their content does not represent an attempt to set out in orderly fashion what we know or reasonably believe about these questions and to present even-handedly whatever issues remain controversial. Authors have been given free rein to defend their own preferred viewpoint on controversial issues, and they will certainly not all be found singing from the same hymn sheet. This, the first book in English ever devoted entirely to the study of Antiochus, is above all an attempt to take debate forward. Nevertheless, anyone seeking to know the state of the art on Antiochean issues, and tofind guidance on navigating the ancient testimonia and modern scholarly literature, will find the book an appropriate place to start.1 The book is born of a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, entitled 'Greco-Roman philosophy in the first century BC' (see Acknowledgements, p. 00). Constructed around a weekly research seminar and two major international workshops, the project sought to advance our understanding of a significant watershed in the history of philosophy. The first century BCE is the period in which philosophy loosened its historic moorings in the great philosophical schools of Athens and entered the Roman world, often attaching itself to such cultural centres as Alexandria and Rome.2"--
