About this topic
Summary This category includes works on the philosophical schools of the Hellenistic period (the Stoics, Skeptics and Epicureans). It also includes the philosophy of late antiquity. While the works of Plato and Aristotle were largely eclipsed in the Hellenistic period, the practice of commenting upon these authors dominates the philosophy of late antiquity (200-600 CE). Neoplatonists wrote commentaries on both, since they regarded Aristotle himself as a somewhat heterodox Platonist. They read Aristotle as an introduction to Plato. Other authors of commentaries, such as Alexander of Aphrodisias, identified as Aristotelians without this admixture of Platonism.
Key works Long & Sedley 1987 provides the most widely used English translation of our evidence on the Hellenistic philosophers. The following collections of articles were seminal in establishing Hellenistic philosophy as an important sub-field in ancient philosophy: Schofield et al 1980,  Barnes 1982Schofield & Striker 1986, and Brunschwig & Nussbaum 1993. The standard reference work is Algra 2005. Boys-Stones 2001 provides one (admittedly controversial) account of the transition from the Hellenistic schools to a post-Hellenistic period dominated by Platonism. Sorabji 2005 provides key extracts from voluminous writings of the Aristotelian and Neoplatonist commentators of late antiquity.
Introductions Long 1986 is a classic introduction to Hellenistic philosophy. Brennan 2005 is a lively introduction to Stoic ethics. Dillon 1977 provides a short overview of the Platonists up to Plotinus. O'Meara 1993 is a gentle introduction to Plotinus. For a wider look at the Neoplatonists, Wallis 1972 is the early classic. Tuominen 2012 provides a survey of the commentary tradition, with more emphasis on Aristotelians.

    This article investigates the original meaning of a passage of Plotinus’ Enneads, the treatise On Fate (Enneads, III, 1, 5). The thesis of the article envisagesthe understanding of the passage in the light of a Plotinian critic of astrology and argues that the understanding and the modern translations of the passage did not exactly detect neither the Plotinian doctrine nor how Plotinus represents his polemical opponents. We argued in this article that, for criticizing the contemporary astrology of his time, Plotinus (...)
