A pag. ix: "This volume and its companions together contain most of the papers I have published on ancient philosophy over the last forty odd years. Short reviews of books have, almost all, been excluded; so have articles for encyclopaedias and the like; and also one or two items which repeat or anticipate what I have written elsewhere. The pieces are organized thematically rather than chronologically [...] The essays which were originally published in French (and in one case in Italian) are here done into English".
