Book Description:

The progression of philosophy in Ancient Greece spans an extensive and complex period in history. From 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. The compass of information and chorological organization of the text make it an ideal introduction to the sequential dialog between philosophers as they pursued the wisdom of nature and matters both divine and human. Part of the Blackwell Readings in Philosophy Series, this survey of ancient philosophy examines the scope of Greek philosophy at great length, focusing on the key philosophers and their texts, from Pre-Socratic thinkers to the annotations of the Neo-Platonists.
