Reviews of this book:
"Although a nice thing to leave on your coffee table, it is much more than an intellectual fashion acessory: a work which gts better the deeper.And if you should ask what we have still to learn from the speculations and experiment of the ancient greeks, it gives as good an answer as any you will get"
--Christian Tyler, Financial Times

Reviews of this book:
"Greek thought... has compled to capture the sheer nterlectual exhilaration of Greek thought- to introduce its readers to that certain intensity of life among the Greeks whichflourished because of their way of thinking about the world, and to suggest that this way of life should be no more confined to the study now than it was then."
--Lesley Dean-Jones, Washington Times
