Michael Frede

Essays in Ancient Philosophy

“Michael Frede has established himself as a leading figure within the field of ancient philosophy. This book will confirm his reputation, but it will also do something else. It will bring his essays, which have not been widely disseminated, to the general attention of philosophers. The volume will enable them to see for themselves what many now may know only second hand: that Frede’s remarkable erudition allows his interpretive wit to serve even better his essentially philosophical motivation. These essays show historical writing in philosophy at its best. --Alexander Nehamas, University of Pennsylvania

“[Frede’s work] is the vanguard of research and progressive though in the subject.”
