The philosophers of the Hellenistic schools in ancient Greece & Rome (Epicureans, Stoics, Sceptics, Academics, Cyrenaics) made important contributions to the philosophy of mind & the philosophy of psychology. This volume, which contains the proceedings of the 5th Symposium Hellenisticum, describes & analyses their contributions on issues such as: the nature of perception, imagination & belief; the nature of the passions & their role in action; the relationship between mind & body; freedom & determinism; the role of pleasure as a goal; the effects of poetry on belief & passion. Written with a high level of historical & philosophical scholarship, the essays are intended both for classicists and for specialists interested in the philosophy of mind.
