Theophrastus of Eresus

Sources for His Life, Writings, Thought and Influence


These volumes form part of the large international Theophrastus project started by Brill in 1992 and edited by W.W. Fortenbaugh, R.W. Sharples and D. Gutas. Together with volumes comprising the texts and translations, the commentary volumes provide a new generation of classicists with an up-to-date collection of the fragments and testimonia relating to Theophrastus (c. 370-288/5 B.C), Aristotle's pupil and successor as head of the Lyceum. From 2019 onward, volumes on the subject will be published in the main series, Philosophia Antiqua.
