Being in America : sixty years of the Metaphysical Society.

: Since its founding in 1950, the Metaphysical Society of America has remained a pluralistic community dedicated to rigorous philosophical inquiry into the most basic metaphysical questions. At each year's conference, the presidential address offers original insights into metaphysical questions. Both the insights and the questions are as perennial as they are relevant to contemporary philosophers. This volume collects eighteen of the finest representatives from those presidential addresses, including contributions from George Allan, Richard Bernstein, Norris Clarke, Vincent Colapietro, Frederick Ferré, Jorge J. E. Gracia, Joseph Grange, Marjorie Grene, George Klubertanz, Ivor Leclerc, Ralph McInerny, Ernan McMullin, Joseph Owens, John Herman Randall, Jr., Nicholas Rescher, Stanley Rosen, John E. Smith, and Robert Sokolowski. Also included are Paul Weiss's inaugural address to the Society, an introduction chronicling the history of the Society, and an original Foreword by William Desmond and Epilogue by Robert Neville.

Euripidea /

: Euripidea contains material to supplement Volume One of the author's Loeb Euripides. It consists of two parts, Testimonia Vitae et Artis Selecta and Textual Discussions. The Testimonia, ancient notices about the life of Euripides and his career as a tragic poet, are printed together for the first time, together with a facing English translation. The Loeb Introduction examines this material critically. Equipped with this body of evidence, students of Greek tragedy and of ancient biography will be able to assess for themselves the reliability of the biographical tradition, in which, the author argues, too much confidence has been placed by interpreters of the plays. The Textual Discussions explain places in the plays of Volume One, Cyclops, Alcestis and Medea , where the text adopted by the editor calls for comment.

Euripidea tertia /

: Euripidea Tertia is a companion volume to the Loeb Classical Library edition of Euripides. It discusses places in the text primarily of the late plays where the editor's choice of variants or adoption of conjectures required some explanation and also places where the translation needed explaining. The plays covered are Iphigenia Taurica, Ion, Helen, Phoenissae, Orestes, Bacchae, Iphigenia Aulidensis , and Rhesus , with addenda on earlier plays. Reviewers of the earlier volumes Euripidea and Euripidea Altera have commented on the cogency and sensitivity of his textual arguments. Serious students of Euripides, tragedy, textual criticism, and Greek metre will all want to read this book.
