Susan Suave Meyer is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania, USA. Bibliographic information. Ancient Ethics: A Critical Introduction Ancient philosophy.

Professor of Philosophy and Undergraduate Chair. I work on Greek and Roman philosophy, with focus on the ancient ethical tradition but wth interests in the natural philosophy of the period (especially Aristotle's and the Stoics'), as well. My monograph Ancient Ethics (Routledge 2008) is a systematic treatment of Plato’s, Aristotle’s, Epicurean, and Stoic ethics designed to serve the interests both of students of ancient philosophy and of specialists in contemporary ethics who seek to understand the differences between Ancient and modern ethical philosophy.

It covers the ethical theories and positions of all the major philosophers (including Socrates, Plato and Aristotle) and schools (Stoics and Epicureans) from the earliest times to the Hellenistic philosophers, analyzing their main arguments and assessing their legacy. This book maps the foundations of this key area, which is crucial knowledge across the disciplines and essential for a wide range of readers.
