'Ancient philosophy' is the conventional title, in Europe and the English-speaking academy, for the philosophical activities of the thinkers of the Graeco-Roman world. It includes a succession of philosophers who operated over a 1,000-year period from the middle of the first millennium BC to the middle of the first millennium AD - from Thales and the earliest Pre-Socratics to late Neoplatonists and Aristotelian commentators, such as Simplicius and Philoponus. Later thinkers in Europe (e.g. Scotus Eriugena) are normally assigned to the category 'medieval', as are Arabic philosophers such as Avicenna and Averro√ęs. Contemporary philosophers from other cultures (e.g. Confucius, Buddha) are also not included.

The medieval period in philosophy dates from the end of the Roman empire (5th century CE) to the European Renaissance (14th century CE), and is largely defined by Neoplatonic, Aristotelian, and Scholastic philosophies.
The Renaissance is a breakpoint between Medieval and Modern thought, spanning (roughly) two and a half centuries from the year 1350 to the late 16th century.
