Superb invitation to clear thinking

Any additional comments?

This is a superb overview of Greek philosophy. What makes this audiobook truly outstanding is the narrator, who is clear and easy to listen to, and also the wealth of selections from the Greek philosophers themselves.

If you want to start thinking with more clarity and living with greater wisdom this is a great place to start!

A very good listening

A very enjoyable read. Excellent narration - I felt like i was in a classroom with the philosophers teaching.

The part on aristotle was especially enjoyable.

I was browsing some other readings by the Griffith brothers. I believe they'll be on my wish list.
