Early Greek Philosophy by John Burnet, with Burnet's notes
5. Neoplatonists 7. The "Opinions" of Theophrastus

From Burnet's Note on the Sources


6. The Doxographi Graeci
The Doxographi Graeci of Professor Hermann Diels (1879) threw an entirely new light upon the filiation of the later sources; and we can only estimate justly the value of statements derived from these if we bear constantly in mind the results of his investigation. Here it will only be possible to give an outline which may help the reader to find his way in the Doxogyaphi Graeci itself.
