Chapter Summary

This front matter section of Aëtiana: The Method and Intellectual Context of a Doxographer, Volume two The Compendium, Part two contains the table of contents. Part II offers the first full reconstruction in a single unified text of Book II, which deals with the cosmos and the heavenly bodies. It is based on extensive analysis of the relevant witnesses and includes listings of numerous doxographical-dialectical parallels in other ancient writings. This new treatment of the evidence supersedes Diels' still dominant source-critical approach, and will prove indispensable for scholars in ancient philosophy.

Keywords: Aëtiana; ancient writings; doxographer; philosophy
