2 - Chronology

from PART I - INTRODUCTION
Summary
During the years immediately following the deaths of Plato (348/7 BC) and Aristotle (322/1 BC) Athenian philosophical life was dominated by four large schools: the Academy, the Peripatos, the Stoa and the Garden (Kēpos) of Epicurus. Alongside these were the Pyrrhonian sceptics, named after their founder Pyrrho of Elis, and certain representatives of the so-called minor Socratic schools, in particular the Cyrenaics, the Dialecticians and the Cynics. This chapter gives a concise bird's-eye sketch of the principal events in the lives of the more important personalities in correlation with the more secure dates in the chronology. The chronology of Epicurus (342/1-271/0), the founder of the other great Hellenistic school of philosophy, Epicureanism, is founded principally on Apollodorus' synchronisms as recorded in Diogenes Laertius. Among the members who comprised Epicurus' first circle of friends and disciples and who attended his school are Pythocles, Polyaenus, Colotes and Idomeneus.
