This volume, the thirty-second year of published proceedings, contains five papers and commentaries presented to the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy during the academic year 2015-16. Paper topics include: Stoic constitution of bodies through blending as causal; the failure to distinguish divine and human eros in the Phaedrus; perception in the Republic's tripartite soul, recognizing autonomy in the non-rational parts; Stoic identity, peculiar qualities and the role of the pneuma, and an alternative read of Plato's politics that pairs his philosophical theory and historical events, the Republic as reconstruction of Socrates' defense in the Apology and the Laws as a reconstruction of Plato's idea of political reform in the Seventh Letter.
