    The development of Greek philosophy 1908 pdf book by Robert Adamson

    The development of Greek philosophy  1908 pdf book by Robert Adamson The following pages do not claim to be founded upon elaborate research. The author’s primary interest was philosophical; but philosophy, he held, must be studied in connexion with its history; and he devoted much of his time to the study of the Greek philosophers.  In their writings he found an unprejudiced and continuous endeavor to give clear answers to the fundamental ques- tions of knowledge and reality. And it is as an estimate, from the philosophical point of view, of the history and results of Greek thought that his work is now published. It is hoped also that it…

    PDF : A few days in Athens, being the translation of a Greek manuscript discovered in Herculaneum by Frances Wright

    A few days in Athens, Being the translation of a Greek manuscript discovered in Herculaneum by Frances Wright (1850) translation of a Greek manuscript discovered in Herculaneum contains Epicurus teaching. The original MS. fell into the hands of my erudite correspondent in the autumn of the year 1817, From that period until the commencement of last winter, all his leisure hours were devoted to the arduous task of unroll- ing the leaves, and decyphering the half defaced characters. The imperfect condition of the MS. soon obliged him to forego his first intention of transcribing the original Greek; he had recourse, therefore, to an Italian version, supplying the chasms, consisting sometimes…

    History of Greek philosophy (1923) by B. A. G. Fuller, PDF book

    History of Greek philosophy (1923) by  B. A. G. Fuller, PDF book  Excerpt from the author’s introduction:To add another to the numerous histories of Greek Philosophy available in English may seem uncalled for and imprudent, if not downright impertinent. The books already at hand are excellent, and, it would appear, sufficient. The more detailed and critical are standard and exhaustive works of reference and of advanced instruction; the shorter and the more concise serve to aid and refresh the memory, or to give an accurate small scale map, easily readable to the practiced or interested eye. But the fact remains that however invaluable they may be to one already familiar…

    Greek hero cults and ideas of immortality 1921 PDF book by Richard Farnell

    Download Greek hero cults and ideas of immortality  1921 Free PDF book by Richard Farnell The work has been long delayed by other literary tasks and the cares of official life. And delay, whether chosen or enforced, gives a writer the advantage of living through many temporary phases of theorizing and of chewing the cud of long reflection before making up his mind. I was glad to find that the settled conviction that at last, I had reached concerning Greek heroic saga and saga-personages was the same as that which inspires Mr. Chadwick in his admirable treatise The Heroic Age. For a general exposition of my views on the right and…

    Greek cynics. by Farrand Sayre PDF book (1949)

    Download Greek Cynics Free PDF book by  Farrand Sayre (1949) excerpt from the author’s introduction: This work was begun as a revision of a former work entitled, ” Diogenes of Sinope, a Study of Greek Cynicism.” But since there have been some changes in the point of view and some additional matter has been included, it is thought more appropriate to regard it as new work on the same subject. Diogenes of Sinope was a semi-mythical character whose connection with Cynicism is doubtful. There are several versions of Cynicism; for instance, there is that of Epictetus, that of Julian, that of Theodor Gomperz and that of D. R. Dudley. In…

    Stoicism and its influence 1961 Free PDF book by R. M. Wenley

    Download  Stoicism and its influence Free PDF book by R. M. Wenley excerpt from the author’s introduction HISTORIANS, even historians of philosophy, have tended to dismiss Stoicism lightly, and popular opinion has taken the cue. No doubt, relevant reasons abound. The riches of Socrates, Democritus, Plato, and Aristotle served to accentuate the comparative poverty of the next age. Its effort over, Hellenic genius was no longer capable of following the argument whithersoever it led.Serene, fearless treatment of fundamental problems gave place to subjective musings, which ran to whim sometimes. Sanity and balance went, extravagant or, eventually, fantastic theories found an audience. The barbarians — so the Attic Greeks would have…

Epictetus himself wrote nothing, and we owe the Manual and four books of Lectures (four others being lost) to one of his pupils, Flavius Arrianus of Nicomedia (who subsequently became Consul and Governor of Cappadocia and a noted historian under the Emperor Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, circa a.d. 140).   Epictetus was born about a.d. 50, and died some…

He studied under Socrates, who appears as a character in many of his dialogues. He attended Socrates’ trial and that traumatic experience may have led to his attempt to design an ideal society. Following the death of Socrates, he traveled widely in search of learning. After twelve years he returned to Athens and founded his Academy, one of…
