Review quote

'(Paideia) is intended for the general reader, and it is probably God's gift to educators, because it conveys to the reader in a clear and attractive form, covering the ground comprehensively, a new conception of the central point of view in Hellenic society and culture.' Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker

Back cover copy

Werner Jaeger's acclaimed three-volume work treats PAIDEIA, the shaping of Greek character, as the basis for a study of Hellenism as a whole, to explain the interaction between the historical process by which Greek character was formed and the intellectual process by which they constructed their ideal of the human personality. This first volume describes the flowering of Greek culture during the archaic and classical epochs that preceded the fall of Athens at the end of the Peloponnesian Wars, at the beginning of the fourth century B.C.
