3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on January 9, 2001
Format: Hardcover
The book contains very valuable commentaries, analysis and introductions to the key elements in Plato and Aristotle's thinking. This heavy-weight book range from the mythological oral tradition, greek tragedy, the pre-socratic philosophers, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, paganism and the genesis of Christianity. A pretty expensive book, but the 704 pages is worth every penny.
