Susan Sauvé Meyer
Susan Sauvé Meyer works on Greek and Roman philosophy, with focus on the ancient ethical tradition and additional interests in the natural philosophy of the period (especially Aristotle and the Stoics). Her monograph Ancient Ethics (Routledge 2008) is a systematic treatment of Plato’s, Aristotle’s, Epicurean, and Stoic ethics designed to serve the interests both of students of ancient philosophy and of specialists in contemporary ethics who seek to understand the differences between Ancient and modern ethical philosophy. She has published a translation and commentary on Plato’s Laws, Books 1-2, in the Clarendon Plato Series of Oxford University Press, and she is at work on the next volume, which will cover Books 3, 4, and 5. Her latest book is a new translation of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics (abridged, with notes for the general reader) in the series Ancient Wisdom for Modern Readers (Princeton University Press).
