Synopsis: Classical Philosophy is a comprehensive examination of early philosophy from the presocratics through to Aristotle. The aim of the book is to provide an explanation and analysis of the ideas that flourished at this time and considers their relevance both to the historical development of philosophy and to contemporary philosophy today. From these ideas we can see the roots of arguments in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and political philosophy.
The book is arranged in four parts by thinker and covers:
The Presocratics Socrates Plato Aristotle Christopher Shields' style is inviting, refreshing and ideal for anyone coming to the subject for the first time. He provides a balanced account of the central topics and ideas that emerged from the period and includes helpful further reading and chapter overviews.

Review: This is a fine introduction to ancient philosophy, consistently clear and carefully argued, interesting and generally attractive to read.
–Vasilis Politis, Trinity College, Dublin

I found the volume well-organized and philosophically engaging. It doesn't talk down to the reader, nor attempt to blind him/her with science (or philosophy), so it should be well-suited for the intelligent non-expert.
–Raphael Woolf, Harvard University
