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 conception of the central point of view in Hellenic society and culture. Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker The most illuminating work I have ever read on Greece. Edith Hamilton, The New York Times Book Review.

Back cover copy

The final volume of Werner Jaeger's three-volume Paideia begins at the same point as its predecessor--the fall of the Periclean empire--but pursues a different line of intellectual development.
