Pressestimmen"The essays are well written, learned, and philosophically sophisticated." Choice "Overall, this is a fine collection of essays, one which can be read with profit either by a beginning student or by a scholar. The contributors discuss their subject in the best traditions of history of philosophy, showing knowledge of and respect for both ancient and modern traditions, without trying to make over either tradition in the interests of the other." Daniel W. Graham, Teaching Philosophy "Everson's first volume must be judged an unqualified success, since it demonstrates better than any comparable anthology both the variety and philosophical sophistication of ancient epistemological discussions." Philip Mitsis, Classical World
