Greek Philosophy : Surprisingly Modern Wisdom From Ancient GreeksBooks
Classical Greece, the miraculous age of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, was a turning point for humankind. A refreshing breeze seemed to blow from the Ionian coast westwards, stirring man into awareness. For the first time in history, philosophy and rational thought emerged from the mythological dream-world, freeing the human spirit and triggering a cultural evolution which, within the next two thousand years, would transform our species more radically than the previous two hundred thousand had done. The sole purpose of this little book is to provide small, juicy bits and snapshots of the Greek philosophical thought, which remain as pertinent and well-timed as ever. The coexistence of the "original" Ancient Greek Language with the English one, inspires the readers, as lovers of wisdom, to seek more, such as the true meaning of the word philosophy.
