Greek Philosophy : Surprisingly Modern Wisdom from Ancient Greeks
Classical Greece, the miraculous age of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, was a turning point for the humankind. A refreshing breeze seemed to blow from 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 philosophic thought, that remain as pertinent and well-timed as ever. The coexistence of the "original" Ancient Greek Language with the English one, targets to inspire the readers so as to seek more, as lovers of wisdom, the true meaning of the world philosophy.
