Product Description

Review

We used this book for a Humanities course on Antiquity. It was perfect for our purposes--one section of the course was on the origins of Greek philosophy. --Gregory McMahon, Department of History, University of New Hampshire --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By "mythologue" on 10 Oct. 2002
Format: Paperback
This book is less the study of the presocratic thinkers taken one by one, fragment by fragment, than a look at how Greek thought before Socrates shaped itself; this is something such introductions should do, since it's necessary to have a good enough grasp of the general evolution of Greek thought before embarking on further studies. Hussey tries, as much as possible (a relevant problem for any student of the presocratics), to present the context in which the ideas of the presocratics came to be. One of his goals is to mark the thinkers' importance and originality; in order to do so, he often makes connexions between different thinkers to show how one might have made another possible. Hence his chronological approach, which takes into account the 'dialogue' between the presocratics. The book does a good job of introducing the reader to the main issues surrounding the study of the presocratics; the chapters on the Milesians, Heraclitus, Parmenides and Zeno are especially of note in that regard.
