Product description

From the Back Cover

The progression of philosophy in ancient Greece spans an extensive and complex period in history. Between 600 BCE and 600 CE the foundations of philosophy as we know it were laid, establishing the central areas of philosophical concern, and creating an agenda for future study and debate.

This thorough introduction to ancient philosophy:

  • Focuses on the key philosophers and their texts, from Pre–Socratic thinkers through to the Neo–Platonists
  • Brings together the key primary writings of Thales, Xenophanes, Parmenides, Anaxagoras, Gorgias, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Lucretius, Seneca, Sextus Empiricus, Plotinus, and many others
  • Is broken down into eight chronological sections for easy comprehension and comparison

The readings are accompanied by expert commentary from the editors.

This book was great for my college course because it takes excerpts from classical writing and not only delves into the rationale behind them but really explains it to the reader.

Good condition but boring and was required for a class so nothing against the order just the book
5.0 out of 5 stars Needs a guide 12 Oct. 2015
By Mario Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like this book, but in college classes there never seems to be enough time to digest the information. I wish there was a guide or something that you can get with this to help understand some of the schools of thought and reasoning talked about in the book.
