From its foundation in the late forties, Philosophia Antiqua has been the premier series of monographs on the history of ancient philosophy in the scholarly world, covering all periods from the Presocratics to the later Neoplatonists. The series now emphasises areas that have been less well represented in past literature: Hellenistic philosophy, the Sceptical tradition, Galen and other non-Platonist authors of later antiquity.
Alongside traditional text-orientated works (editions, translations, commentaries and analyses of particular texts and authors), the series offers a forum for works showing the interaction of ancient and modern topics of philosophical interest and between ancient and modern forms of philosophical analysis. Such less-traditional studies will no longer assume a thorough knowledge of ancient Greek and Latin on the part of the reader. Volumes are published in English, French and German. The series does not include Festschriften.
