The Hellenistic and Roman Age Author:Emile Brehier, Wade Baskin (Translator) The Hellenistic and Roman Age is the second part of Behier's great Histoire de la philosophie, published in the 1920's and 1930's. Following The Hellenic Age, it completes Brehier's account of the classical philosophers. The post-Aristotelian systems are taken up in this part -- the Socratics, the Old Stoa, Epicureanism, Skepticism, Neo-Platonis... more »m, and Hellenism and Christianity.
"Nothing is harder to disentangle than the history of intellectual thought," writes Brehier. Yet he consistently separates the vital from the peripheral and illuminates the main trends of philosophical thought, from the emergence of the minor Socratics to the full flowering of Neo-Platonism.« less
