The morality of happiness by Julia Annas ( )
35 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ancient ethical theories, based on the notions of virtue and happiness, have struck many as an attractive alternative to modern theories. But we cannot find out whether this is true until we understand ancient ethics - and to do this we need to examine the basic structure of ancient ethical theory, not just the details of one or two theories. In this book, Julia Annas brings together the results of a wide-ranging study of ancient ethical philosophy and presents it in a way that is easily accessible to anyone with an interest in ancient or modern ethics. She examines the fundamental notions of happiness and virtue, the role of nature in ethical justification, and the relation between concern for self and concern for others. Her careful examination of the ancient debates and arguments shows that many widespread assumptions about ancient ethics are mistaken. Ancient ethical theories are not egoistic, and do not depend for their acceptance on metaphysical theories of a teleological kind. Most centrally, they are recognizably theories of morality, and the ancient disputes about the place of virtue in happiness can be seen as akin to modern disputes about the demands of morality. Accessible to nonspecialists and the only comprehensive treatment of ancient ethical theory, The Morality of Happiness will appeal to classicists, ancient philosophers, philosophers in moral and political philosophy, and all those interested in the history of ideas
An introduction to Plato's Republic by Julia Annas ( Book )
30 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Stressing Plato's desire to stimulate philosophical thinking in his readers, Julia Annas here demonstrates the coherence of his main moral argument on the nature of justice, and expounds related concepts of education, human motivation, knowledge and understanding. In a clear systematic fashion, this book shows that modern moral philosophy still has much to learn from Plato's attempt to move the focus from questions of what acts the just person ought to perform to the more profound questions of what sort of person the just person ought to be"--Pub. website

Outlines of scepticism by Sextus ( Book )
28 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Outlines of Scepticism, by the Greek philosopher Sextus Empiricus, is a work of major importance for the history of Greek philosophy. Its first part contains an elaborate exposition of the Pyrrhonian variety of Scepticism; its second and third parts are critical and destructive, arguing against 'dogmatism' in logic, epistemology, science and ethics. The Outlines is the fullest extant account of ancient Scepticism, and it is also one of our most copious sources of information about the other Hellenistic philosophies. Moreover, the rediscovery of Sextus in the sixteenth century brought about a revolution in philosophy. Julia Annas and Jonathan Barnes provide an accurate and readable English translation, with a short introduction and brief annotation. Anyone interested in the history of philosophy will gain from an acquaintance with Sextus; and for students of Hellenistic philosophy his writings are indispensable
