9 Barnes, Jonathan THE TOILS OF SCEPTICISM
Cambridge University Press 1990 0521383390 / 9780521383394 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very minor shelfwear. ; In the works of Sextus Empiricus, scepticism is presented in its most elaborate and challenging form. This book investigates - both from an exegetical and from a philosophical point of view - the chief argumentative forms which ancient scepticism developed. Thus the particular focus is on the Agrippan aspect of Sextus' Pyrrhonism. Barnes gives a lucid explanation and analysis of these arguments, both individually and as constituent parts of a sceptical system. For, taken together, these forms amount to a formidable and systematic challenge to any claim to knowledge or rational belief. The challenge had a great influence on the history of philosophy. And it has never been met. This study reflects the growing interest in ancient scepticism. Quotations from the ancient sources are all translated and Greek terms are explained. Notes on the ancient authors give a brief guide to the sources, both familiar and unfamiliar. ; 176 pages

16 Brickhouse, Thomas C. & Nicholas D. Smith SOCRATES ON TRIAL
Princeton University Press 1989 0691073325 / 9780691073323 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Foxing to textblock. DJ spine sunned. ; Thomas Brickhouse and Nicholas Smith offer a comprehensive historical and philosophical interpretation of, and commentary on, one of Plato's most widely read works, the Apology of Socrates. Virtually every modern interpretation characterizes some part of what Socrates says in the Apology as purposefully irrelevant or even antithetical to convincing the jury to acquit him at his trial. This book, by contrast, argues persuasively that Socrates offers a sincere and well-reasoned defense against the charges he faces. First, the authors establish a consensus of ancient reports about Socrates' moral and religious principles and show that these prohibit him from needlessly risking the condemnation of the jury. Second, they consider each specific claim made by Socrates in the Apology and show how each can be construed as an honest effort to inform the jurors of the truth and to convince them of his blamelessness. The arguments of this book are informed by a critical review of the scholarly literature and careful attention to the philosophy expressed in Plato's other early dialogues. ; 337 pages

18 Browning, Robert MEDIEVAL AND MODERN GREEK
Hutchinson University Library 1969 0090996003 / 9780090996001 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. ; To speakers of modern Greek the Homeric poems of the 7th century BC are not written in a foreign language. The Greek language has enjoyed a continuous tradition from earliest times until now. This book traces its history from the immediately post-classical or Hellenistic period to the present day. The aim is both to analyse the changing structure of a language stabilised by a peculiarly long and continuous literary tradition, and to show how changing historical circumstances are reflected in its development. In particular the historical roots of modern Greek's internal bilingualism are traced. ; Hutchinson University Library: Modern languages; 153 pages
