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 1979,  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 1974 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.

Buenos Aires: Biblos. pp. 43-55.
    Gregory of Nyssa’s treatise 'De opificio hominis' was one of the only Greek anthropological texts translated into latin during the early Middle Ages, by Dionysius Exiguus between the late 5th and early 6th centuries and by John Scotus Eriugena in the 9th century. Nicholas of Cusa certainly became acquainted with this work indirectly through the extensive citations in Eriugena’s 'Periphyseon' and through their partial reproduction in the 'Clavis physicae' of Honorius Augustodunensis. Our paper will analyse these and other possible ways (...)

    In the Philosophical Anthropology of Gregory of Nyssa, inspired by his Trinitarian Theology, the new concept of hypostasis as a unique self implies for the first time the irreducibility of human person to the universal. Moreover, Gregory manages to account for both a deep communion of life and nature among all men and a clear distinction between persons, in a truly harmonious dynamism of the physical and the hypostatic. This union and distinction will also inspire his original conception of proaíresis, (...)

    Euhemerus, the famous theorist on the nature of the gods who lived around 300 BC, has usually been discussed as a disembodied intellectual figure, with scholars focusing on his literary and philosophical sources and influence. Although he is called “Euhemerus of Messene,” there is uncertainty as to where he was born, lived, and worked, in particular whether he came from Sicilian or Peloponnesian Messene. Until now, the conquests of Alexander the Great and the establishment of the Successor Kingdoms have been (...)
