This volume comprises twenty-six pieces, both in Spanish and in English, written by the Chilean-American scholar and philosopher Alfonso Gómez-Lobo (1940-2011). The papers contained in this book show some of his scholarly and philosophical interests, which spanned a wide range of topics, including Ancient philosophy, Ancient History, and Greek Literature and Art. The papers were originally published between 1977 and 2006. They cover all the chief topics that interested Gómez-Lobo the most and offer a fine panorama of his scholarly concerns and contributions to different fields in classical studies.
