Review:

"...this rich collection contains important essays, each by a scholar whose previous translation or commentary is well known for the topic on which he or she is writing." Laurence D. Houlgate, Ethics

"This is an excellent collection of essays by eight accomplished philosophical scholars. No previous collection on ancient ethics matches both the quality of the essays and the range of figures covered. This collection is a worthy companion to serious study of ancient ethical thought."
