•Readings in Ancient Greek Philosophy: From Thales to Aristotle, S. Marc. Cohen, Patricia Curd, and C. D. C. Reeve.
This is standard anthology. It is organized chronologically. The Presocratics are first, followed by the Sophists, Plato, and concluding with Aristotle. The selections are reasonable. It is a good choice for the student who does not have a deep interest in ancient philosophy and who does not wish to own complete works.
•Philosophy Before Socrates, Richard D. McKirahan, Jr.
This is a standard set of translations and commentary on the Presocratics.
•The Presocratic Philosophers. A Critical History with a Selection of Texts, G. S. Kirk, J. E. Raven, and M. Schofield.
•Plato. Complete Works, John Cooper.
This is the now standard collection of translations of Plato's works. There are translations of individual works I prefer to the ones included in this set, but there is no superior complete set of translations in English. It is a great reference work.
•Complete Works of Aristotle, Jonathan Barnes.
This is the now standard collection of translations of Aristotle's works. Again, there are translations of individual works I prefer to the ones included in this set; however, there is no superior complete set of translations in English. Like Plato. Complete Works, Complete Works of Aristotle is an indispensable reference for the serious student.
•Hellenistic Philosophy. Introductory Readings, Brad Inwood and L. P. Gerson.
This is a standard anthology. It is has selections from the three main Hellenistic schools. The first part of the book is devoted to Epicureanism, the second part to Stoicism, and the third part to Skepticism. Like Readings in Ancient Greek Philosophy, this is a good choice for the student who does not have a deep interest in ancient philosophy.
•The Hellenistic Philosophers. Volume I. Translations of the Principal Sources, with Philosophical Commentary. Volume II. Greek and Latin Texts, with Notes and Bibliography, A. A. Long and D. N. Sedley.
Volume I is the now standard set of translations and commentary on the Hellenistic philosophers. It is organized in rough chronological order. Early Pyrrhonism is first, followed by Epicureanism, Stoicism, the Academic Skeptics, and finishing with the Pyrrhonist revival. This is an essential reference work for the serious student.
