The Hellenistic Philosophy Society aims to promote the study of figures and schools that emerged in the period after the death of Aristotle (~322 BCE) until Rome defeated the last Hellenistic dynasty at the Battle of Actium (~31 BCE). The Society focuses on the philosophies of the period's three major schools: Epicureanism, Stoicism, and Skepticism (both Academic and Pyrrhonian). Included also in the scope of the Society are later ancient thinkers who post-dated the Hellenistic period but whose work was grounded in Hellenistic thought.
