The Wisdom of the Ancient Greeks

For nearly three thousand years the wisdom of the Ancient Greeks has influenced almost every sphere of thought, from drama to science. Resonating through the ages, the writings of this majestic civilization combine the passion of human emotions with the mental rigours of philosophy.

Drawn from the vast wealth of Ancient Greek literature, this little compendium offers an inspiring selection of extracts from the greatest classical thinkers. From Plato’s thoughts on justice to Homer’s vision of love and Aesop’s words of wisdom, these passages address a multitude of timeless themes, turning ancient thought into practical advice.

As both a testament to the enduring preoccupations of humankind, and a philosophical handbook for modern times, this keepsake will provide much spiritual nourishment for many years to come.
