A concise selection from the standard philosophical works after the death of Aristotle to the close of the third century, which includes the writings of seminal figures, from early Christian thought.

Lucretius, Epicurus, Epictetus, Sextus Empiricus, Lucian, Philo of Alexandria, and Plotinus were among the greatest philosophers of the Hellenistic Age.

In carefully chosen selections of their writings, eminent scholar Jason Saunders offers readers a provocative sampling of the major surviving works, showing how their philosophies greatly influenced early Christian thought, as evidenced by the passages included from the work of St. Paul, Clement of Alexandria, and Tertullian.
