In epistemology, there are close philosophical links between the Cyrenaics and the Sceptics, both Pyrrhonists and Academics. There are further links with modern philosophy as well, for the Cyrenaics introduced a form of subjectivism which in some ways preannounces Cartesian views, endorsed by Malebranche and Hume and developed by Kant. This book reconstructs Cyrenaic epistemology, explains how it depends on Cyrenaic hedonism, locates it in the context of ancient debates, and discusses its connections with modern and contemporary epistemological positions.

The paper highlights the conceptual connections between these issues, and also shows how later Epicureans develop Epicurus' doctrine of preconceptions while remaining orthodox about the core of that doctrine.

This paper is a contribution to a debate that has its origins in antiquity and still continues to this day, which concerns the nature of the ideal self in Plato and which takes roughly the following form.
On the one hand, following the On the one hand, following the Platonist philosopher Numenius, many interpreters which I call universalists maintain that, since the self in Plato is an immaterial rational element, it cannot be personal and individual, but must be impersonal and universal. On the other hand, some scholars which I call individualists or particularists follow Plotinus in assuming or asserting the individuality of Platonic selves.
But, unlike Plotinus, particularists have never acknowledged that the issue is controversial and have never really confronted the problem of how the self is individual or what its individuality might imply. Therefore I defend afresh the individuality of the self. Moreover, I suggest that it is not incompatible with the sort of universality involved in contemplation but, in fact, constitutes a presupposition for achieving transcendence.
However, my argument is restricted to the Phaedrus alone and does not purport to draw conclusions regarding the entire Platonic corpus.
