    1. The Greek Philosophers: from Thales to Aristotle, W.K.C. Guthrie (William Keith Chambers Guthrie)W.K.C. Guthrie has written a survey of the great age of Greek philosophy - from Thales to Aristotle - which combines comprehensiveness with brevity. Without pre-supposing a knowledge of Greek or the Classics, he sets out to explain the ideas of Plato and Aristotle in the light of their predecessors rather than their successors, and to describe the characteristic features of the Greek way of thinking [...]

    2. This was a great read! Prior to reading this, I was not much for philosophical thought; however, this book really gives you an in-depth understanding of 3rd and 4th century B.C. philosophers and their philosophical arguments. One thing I discovered was that most of the popular philosophers of this time period drew thoughts from their predecessors. So, for example, Plato drew inspiration from Socrates, and Aristotle expanded upon Plato's philosophies. This mirrors Einstein's philosophy which he d [...]

    3. An excellent introduction into the pre-Socratics and their influence on Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Together with Thomas Szlezak's Reading Plato, it makes a great starting point for anyone interested in the ideas of the ancient Greeks.

    4. After having the Greco-Roman thing dully hammered, and thus rendered uninteresting, into my apathetic pre-pubescent skull, I am finally starting to catch on/catch up. I was attracted to this in a bookstore as hospital reading for yet another kidney stone blasting, but when I opened it up and saw its ancient font and 1950 publishing date I was skeptical, but found it to be a modest, well-written and succinct summation of Greek philosophy (spending most its energy on the big three: Socrates, Plato [...]

    5. ანტიკური ფილოსოფიის მოკლე და საინტერესო კურსია ( წაკითხული არაფილოსოფოსთათვის). შესაძლოა, ვინმეს უფრო ღრმა ინტერესი გაუჩინოს ანტიკური ფილოსოფიისადმი.

    6. An excellent short, concise, and clear introduction to ancient Greek classical philosophy from Thales to Aristotle. I particularly appreciated Guthrie's explanation of some key words- according to their ancient Greek meaning- such as, justice, good, virtue, etc

    7. This is a concise and clear book on the early Greek philosophers. Guthrie begins by stating that his intent is to explain Socrates, Plato and Aristotle in terms of their predecessors, rather than focusing on their subsequent influence on Western philosophy. He reviews those predecessors who struggled and debated the great themes of the day (materialism versus idealism, permanence versus change, relativism versus absolutism). Philosophy broke out into two main schools of thought, reflecting matte [...]

    8. Perusing this short book has helped extend my sketchy knowledge about the inception and expansion of philosophy in ancient Greece, and the book is surprisingly friendly to its readers.Guthrie looks at the pre-Socratic philosophers first, then the Big Three: Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. This leaves out later philosophers such as the Epicureans and the Stoics, but provides us a much stronger background on those Big Three. To my surprise, however, the book included no discussion on the developmen [...]

    9. Compré este libro de segunda mano, a sabiendas de que Guthrie es un reputadísimo conocedor de la filosofía griega antigua. Este libro, al contrario que su prodcción magna de varios volúmenes, es una introducción somera a los primeros filósofos griegos, desde Tales a Aristóteles. El mérito es que lo que explica es lo fundamental y lo hace de una forma lo suficientemente sencilla como para que entendamos el sentido de las pajas mentales que, a nuestros ojos de occidentales del siglo XXI, [...]

    10. This book was a very concise, clear account of Greek philosophers. The book seemed to be written a college level and it spends most of its time on the three biggest philosophers, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. However, it does briefly describe some of the ideas that were around in the times before Socrates.The book is written in a rather dry way which appealed greatly to me. It very directly describes the topics, and is very frank about the fact that he is only including parts of each Greek's p [...]

    11. Does a very good job of establishing the easily forgotten difference and remoteness of the ancient Greek cultural and intellectual background. Also a good synopsis of the Pre-Socratics and their concerns, putting Socrates, Plato and Aristotle in appropriate context, plus a good explanation of key Greek terms and concepts. Some of these can’t really be translated directly, so this is pretty valuable. Guthrie knows his subject well and packs a lot into 175 pages. It’s also an easy and pleasant [...]

    12. This book was a very useful overview of the major Greek philosophers. The book explained many of the major points of each philosopher. The information was presented in a concise and easy to understand format. I feel like I am much more equipped to tackle the writings of Plato now that I have read this book.

    13. One of my favorite history books. A short and very accessible introduction to classical thinking. It has plenty of references for you to look at if you want to delve deeper into any of the subjects. I particularly like how he doesn't judge the philosophers as if they were alive today but appreciates there original thinking for the time in which they lived.

    14. Gurthrie's introduction to the Greek philosophers is a simple, accessible and straight-forward primer on the big thinkers of Ancient Greece. I found his discussions of Plato and Aristotle admirably succinct and perspicacious.

    15. The best concise account of the development of Greek thought. One of the very few philosophy books that doesn't digress much from the goal. Amazing, and can be read in one sitting!Half of the book is dedicated to pre-Socratic philosophers, and the other half to Socrates, Plato and Aristotle.

    16. I love this book. I am not enough of a Greek philosophy scholar to know how reliable he is, but I am thoroughly convinced, especially of the political aspects of Socrates and Plato's thought. He also knows how to write about philosophers, which is a much underrated virtue.

    17. I've read very few books on the subject philosophies and quite ignorant on the subject. However the book is a nice companion piece and will motivate me in continuing the journey of the great thinkers. I hope to revisit the book again in the near future.

    18. A good brief treatment; he presents it as philosophy progressing upward, but it felt to me that the direction was the opposite.

    19. I thought this was a rather good introduction to Greek Philosophy. Particularly the emphasis early on maintaining an awareness of the greek terms rather than the common translations.

    20. Este es uno de los mejores libros para aprender de los filósofos griegos. El resumen es bastante bueno.Recomiendo este libro para cualquiera que quiera aprender sobre el pensamiento griego.

    21. Well-done introductory survey by a scholar whose renowned, multi-volume History Of Greek Philosophy I would love to get tomeday.

    22. One of the better introductions to Greek thought I have come across. The book is expertly organised in relation to the questions that probed the philosophers at the time.

    23. A nice, concise description of Greek philosophy up to Aristotle. What it lacks in depth it makes up for in clarity. Would be a good introduction for a beginner.
