Volume thirteen in the Rutgers University Series of Classical Humanities, Aristo Of Ceos: Text, Translation, And Discussion, edited by William W. Fortenbaugh (Professor Emeritus of Classics at Rutgers University) and Stephen A. White (Associate Professor of Classics at The University Of Texas at Austin), is an anthology of highly scholarly essays revolving around the Greek philosophical School of Aristotle in general, and the philosophical works of Aristo of Iulis on Ceos in particular. Not to be confused with the similarly named Stoic philosopher from Chios, Aristo of Iulis' works include biographies of Heraclitus, Socrates, and Epicurus, recording the wills of the leaders of Peripatos, as well as several possible writings whose authorship remain in dispute between Aristo and his Stoic counterpart. Individual essays include numerous excerpts from ancient Greek texts; though at least one essay is in Greek, the overwhelming majority of Aristo of Ceos is in English or has an English translation. A close study of characters in Aristo's writings, natural philosophy and peripatetic biology in Aristo's era, and much more, ideal for college libraries and advanced practitioners of philosophy.
