The Greek Philosophers: From Thales to Aristotle

By: "Guthrie, William K."

Price: $0.95

Publisher: Harper & Row:

Seller ID: 9780061310089

ISBN: 0061310085

Condition: GOOD


W.K.C. Guthrie has written a survey of the great age of Greek philosophy--from Thales to Aristotle--which combines comprehensiveness with brevity. Without pre-supposing a knowledge of Greek or the Classics, he sets out to explain the ideas of Plato and Aristotle in the light of their predecessors rather than their successors, and to describe the characteristic features of the Greek way of thinking and outlook on the world. Thus The Greek Philosophers provides excellent background material for the general reader--as well as providing a firm basis for specialist studies. View more info

Heilbroner provides a new theme that connects thinkers as diverse as Adam Smith and Karl Marx.

No study in the history of seventeenth century thought is completed without some mention of Richard Cumberland, one of the many writers who aimed to refute Hobbes. Cumberland remains on of the few important writers of his century on whom, until now, nothing of substance has been written In the past Cumberland has been somewhat unfairly overshadowed by his fellow anti-Hobbists. His one important work, De Legibus Naturae, first appeared in Latin in 1672 and has never been satisfactorily translated into English. That he published so little in such a prolific age was unusual, but his influence thr... View more info
