Book Summary:

The Apology of Socrates was written by Plato. In fact, it’s a defensive speech of Socrates that he said in a court noted down by Plato.The main subject of the speech is a problem of the evil. Socrates insists that neither death nor death sentence is evil. We shouldn’t be afraid of the death because we don’t know anything about it. Socrates proved that the death shouldn’t be taken as the evil with the following dilemma: the death is either a peace or a transit from this life to the next. Both can’t be called evil. Consequently, the death shouldn’t be treated as evil.

Book Summary:

Socrates Asks: 'Where Have You Come From - And Where Are You Going? The Greek philosopher Socrates once asked his student Phaedrus: 'Where have you come from and where are you going?' and although this sounds like just a greeting between two friends; these two simple questions are really at the heart of most 'real' Greek philosophy. We all want to know how it is we got here (where did the universe come from and what is our place in it); and we all want to choose the best, most fulfilling and happiest life for ourselves in the years ahead. Whether we like it or not, at certain critical times in our lives we all have to make important and sometimes difficult Life Choices; and these choices are largely 'philosophical' in nature. What goals should I have for my life, and what are the most important criteria for me personally when making my own unique Life Choices? These sorts of questions are explored in this book, and to help answer them, we will look at some important advice from Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. WARNING - This book simply offers you a wider viewpoint on life and the kind of life you will choose for yourself. It encourages you to investigate some fundamental philosophical questions as you make your own choices and decisions. The book does not tell you how to live your life or offer you some kind of dogma about what you should or should not do. As well as being of interest to people making important Life Choices, this book will also appeal to anyone already interested in philosophy who wants to get a better understanding of why the names of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle are still so well known today some 2,400 years after these great philosophers lived. The 'real' Greek philosophy of Socrates is less about discussing vague abstract ideas, and is much more concerned with the practical side of our lives today. Several of Plato's books are discussed in some detail including: The First Alcibiades, Phaedrus and Phaedo; and some important common themes in Plato are also looked at. Aristotle's 'practical philosophy' about how to improve our lives and the cities we live in is also explored. By the end of this book you will have a good idea of who Socrates, Plato and Aristotle really were, and what Greek philosophy is really all about in the Socratic sense of the word.

Book Summary:

Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle are three of philosophy's greatest contributors. You already knew that. But what you might not know is that they all lived in classical Athens at around the same time. You might not know that Socrates was executed for practicing free speech. You might not know that Plato was sold into slavery for making the Tyrant of Syracuse angry. And you might not know that Aristotle tutored the famous Alexander the Great. The philosophers were part of some crazy world events as well. The Peloponnesian War, the Macedonian takeover, the thirty tyrants who thought they could wipe out Athenian democracy...it's all there. Truth to be told, there's not a lot of testimony out there detailing what their lives were like. Historians of those days were more concerned with documenting the perpetual civil wars, and the philosophers' students were more concerned with recording their teachers' ideas. However, this book by Simon T. Bailey entitled Greek Philosophers: The Lives and Times of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle is a look into what it might have been like for Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle to live in Athens in the fourth and fifth centuries BCE. If you're looking for a dry professorial work full of archaeological evidence, then this book isn't going to be your cup of tea, but if you're looking for a partially fictionalized rendition of the philosophers' lives and thoughts that seeks to humanize those marble statues or are looking for something to wet your palate and get you excited about ancient Greek history and philosophy, then this book is your boon.

Book Summary:

An innovative and insightful exploration of the passionate early life of Socrates and the influences that led him to become the first and greatest of philosophers Socrates: the philosopher whose questioning gave birth to the ideas of Western thought, and whose execution marked the end of the Athenian Golden Age. Yet despite his pre-eminence among the great thinkers of history, little of his life story is known. What we know tends to begin in his middle age and end with his trial and death. Our conception of Socrates has relied upon Plato and Xenophon – men who met him when he was in his fifties and a well-known figure in war-torn Athens. There is mystery at the heart of Socrates' story: what turned the young Socrates into a philosopher? What drove him to pursue with such persistence, at the cost of social acceptance and ultimately of his life, a whole new way of thinking about the meaning of existence? In this revisionist biography, Armand D'Angour draws on neglected sources to explore the passions and motivations of young Socrates, showing how love transformed him into the philosopher he was to become. What emerges is the figure of Socrates as never previously portrayed: a heroic warrior, an athletic wrestler and dancer – and a passionate lover. Socrates in Love sheds new light on the formative journey of the philosopher, finally revealing the identity of the woman who Socrates claimed inspired him to develop ideas that have captivated thinkers for 2,500 years.

Book Summary:

Socrates is an flusive figure, Sarah Kofman asserts, and he is necessarily so since he did not write or directly state his beliefs. Kofman suggests that Socrates' avowal of ignorance was meant to be ironic. Later philosophers who interpreted his text invariably resisted the profoundly ironic character of his way of life and diverged widely in their interpretations of him. Kofman focuses especially on the views of Plato, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche.

Book Summary:

Gregory Vlastos (1907-1991) was one of the twentieth century's most influential scholars of ancient philosophy. Over a span of more than fifty years, he published essays and book reviews that established his place as a leading authority on early Greek philosophy. The two volumes that comprise Studies in Greek Philosophy include nearly forty contributions by this acknowledged master of the philosophical essay. Many of these pieces are now considered to be classics in the field. Perhaps more than any other modern scholar, Gregory Vlastos was responsible for raising standards of research, analysis, and exposition in classical philosophy to new levels of excellence. His essays have served as paradigms of scholarship for several generations. Available for the first time in a comprehensive collection, these contributions reveal the author's ability to combine the skills of a philosopher, philologist, and historian of ideas in addressing some of the most difficult problems of ancient philosophy. Volume I collects Vlastos's essays on Presocratic philosophy. Wide-ranging concept studies link Greek science, religion, and politics with philosophy. Individual studies illuminate the thought of major philosophers such as Heraclitus, Parmenides, Anaxagoras, and Democritus. A magisterial series of studies on Zeno of Elea reveals the author's power in source criticism and logical analysis. Volume II contains essays on the thought of Socrates, Plato, and later thinkers and essays dealing with ethical, social, and political issues as well as metaphysics, science, and the foundations of mathematics.

Book Summary:

After the execution of Socrates in 399 BC, a number of his followers wrote dialogues featuring him as the protagonist and, in so doing, transformed the great philosopher into a legendary figure. Xenophon's portrait is the only one other than Plato's to survive, and while it offers a very personal interpretation of Socratic thought, it also reveals much about the man and his philosophical views. In 'Socrates' Defence' Xenophon defends his mentor against charges of arrogance made at his trial, while the 'Memoirs of Socrates' also starts with an impassioned plea for the rehabilitation of a wronged reputation. Along with 'The Estate-Manager', a practical economic treatise, and 'The Dinner-Party', a sparkling exploration of love, Xenophon's dialogues offer fascinating insights into the Socratic world and into the intellectual atmosphere and daily life of ancient Greece.

Book Summary:

Despite his ceaseless efforts to purge his fellow citizens of their unfounded opinions and to bring them to care for what he believes to be the most important things, Plato's Socrates rarely succeeds in his pedagogical project with the characters he encounters. This is in striking contrast to the historical Socrates, who spawned the careers of Plato, Xenophon, and other authors of Socratic dialogues. Through an examination of Socratic pedagogy under its most propitious conditions, focusing on a narrow class of dialogues featuring Lysis and Alcibiades, this book answers the question: "why does Plato portray his divinely appointed gadfly as such a dramatic failure?"

Book Summary:

In the history of ancient philosophy, few figures loom as large as Socrates, whose relentless process of questioning continues to inform philosophical and ethical inquiry today. But during his time, Socrates was a peculiar and sometimes puzzling figure: to some, a barefoot—and even dangerous—gadfly, to others a brilliant and revolutionary teacher. This absorbing volume chronicles what is known of this unorthodox thinker and his incredible legacy. It also provides a window into both the foundations of Western philosophy and the history of golden age Athens, the fate of which was closely tied to that of Socrates himself.

Book Summary:

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 and outlook on the world. Thus The Greek Philosophers provides excellent background material for the general reader - as well as providing a firm basis for specialist studies.
