Although the great Greek philosopher Posidonius had one of the most wide-ranging minds of antiquity, he remains an elusive figure because his writings survive only in fragments. Historians and scholars have attempted to reconstruct his views from these fragments and from careful study of later authors' works that reference him. Particularly relevant today, Posidonius's holistic doctrine posits that all nature, all science, all things celestial and mundane, are united as parts of an organic whole. This comprehensive collection reveals an erudite, prolific, and influential mind.
