Exploring Ideas through Books

(Re)introducing Classical Greece

There is hardly an area of aspiration known to people today on which the Greek mind of antiquity had not also exercised itself. This will be an opportunity for readers to refresh their previous knowledge of everyday Greek references, and for some people, a chance to be introduced for the first time to the main thinkers of the Classical Greek period. The series covers the period from 489 BC to 323 BC.
