In this volume, the author describes some of the salient features of the Athenian social structure and culture, as well as the wider Hellenic society. The aim is not to reveal new facts about this much-studied civilization, but rather to apply such perspectives as are common to sociologists to help understand how this civilization gave rise to and shaped Plato’s social theory. This, then, is a study in the sociology of knowledge – of the Platonic origins of Western social theory, of some of the earliest secular diagnoses of and proposed remedies for the human condition, and of the growth of critical reflection on human relationships as it emerged in ancient Greece.
