In 1879 the young German scholar Hermann Diels published his celebrated Doxographi Graeci, (in which the major doxographical works of antiquity are collected and analysed). Diels' results have been foundational for the study of ancient philosophy ever since.In their ground-breaking study the authors focus on the doxographer Atius, whose work Diels reconstructed from various later sources. First they examine the antecedents of Diels' Atian hypothesis. Then Diels' theory and especially the philological techniques used in its formulation are subjected to detailed analysis. The remainder of the volume offers a fresh examination of the sources for our knowledge for Atius. Diels' theory is revised and improved at significant points.Subsequent volumes will examine the contents and methods of the doxographer and his antecedents in earlier Greek philosophy.No scholar concerned with the history of ancient philosophy can afford to ignore this study.Table of ContentsFigures and Illustrations Sigla Introduction Ch. 1 The Aetius hypothesis before and up to Diels Ch. 2 The theory of Diels' Doxographi Graeci Ch. 3 The sources for Aetius: Ps.
