Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy
This Silver Jubilee volume contains papers originally presented to the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy during the 2002-3 academic year. All of the papers presented that year were given by scholars who are regarded as leading figures in different areas in the history of ancient philosophy. From the eight papers published in this volume two concern various aspects of myth in Plato’s Republic and one explores the hermeneutical retrieval of time and memory in the Platonic corpus in general. Two papers deal with the topics from the field of physics, movement in Plato and Aristotle and the theories of atomism in the Old Academy. Finally, two papers deal with topics from the field of ethics, eudaimonism in the Greeks and morality in Seneca.
