Description: Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects -- from Islam to Sociology, Literary Theory to History, and Archaeology to the Bible. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative -- yet always balanced and complete -- discussions of the central issues in a given discipline or field. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how the subject developed and how it influenced society. Eventually, the series will encompass every major academic discipline, offering all readers an accessible and abundant reference library. Whatever area of study one deems important or appealing, whatever topic fascinates the general reader, the Very Short Introductions series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable.

The tradition of ancient philosophy is a long, rich, and varied one in which the notes of discussion and argument constantly resound. Here, Julia Annas gives a broad view of these traditions as they take shape in six different themes. From understanding the conflict of reason and emotion within ourselves, to investigating whether there are purposes in nature or not, this book introduces readers to some of the major debates of the Ancients, exploring the developments of various themes in the process. Whether she is asking why we continue to read Plato's Republic or investigating reason, knowledge, and scepticism, Annas continually challenges the reader as she leads the way on an engaging and informative tour of ancient thought. With its broad coverage and its suggestions for further reading, this book is theperfect place for the beginner to develop an appreciation for this fascinating and enduring subject.
