“Cicero’s philosophical affiliations.”

“Cicero’s philosophical affiliations,” in The Question of ‘Eclecticism’: Studies in Later Greek Philosophy, eds. J. M. Dillon and A. A. Long. Berkeley, Calif.: 34-69., 1988.


–   This collection of essays is addressed to the growing number of philosophers, classicists, and intellectual historians who are interested in the development of Greek thought after Aristotle. In nine original studies, the authors explore the meaning and history of “eclecticism” in the context of ancient philosophy. The book casts fresh light on the methodology of such central figures as Cicero, Philo, Plutarch, Sextus Empiricus, and Ptolemy, and also illuminates many of the conceptual issues discussed most creatively in this period.
