Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

— Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Professor of Philosophy, US Naval Academy, Annapolis

Modern students can now appreciate the wisdom of the world’s greatest thinkers. Through clear, faithful translations, renowned scholars have made classical philosophical texts

accessible and inspirational.
