LIVES_FRONTCOVER-VOLUME-TWO-webBy Diogenes Laërtius. Translated by Robert Drew Hicks. A marvelous treatise which summarizes the lives, works and basic teachings of every famous ancient Greek philosopher.

Written by a third century AD scholar, this is the full, unexpurgated version of a classic work will introduce the reader to the names, thoughts, and ideas of the people who created the very concept of higher Western philosophical thinking.

Learn about Thales, Solon, Bias, Anacharsis, Anaximander, Socrates, Xenophon, Euclides, Glaucon, Plato, Crates, Aristotle, Zeno, Pythagoras, Epicharmus, Eudoxus, Xenophanes, Democritus, Protagoras, Epicurus, and many more—82 philosophers in total.

All this has been presented in an easy-to read format which has stood the test of time.

It is one of the most widely-referenced classical works highlighting one of the greatest early periods of European civilization. Completely reformatted and beautifully presented.
