A Critical History of Greek Philosophy

by Walter Terence Stace

It is a comprehensive analysis of Greek philosophical thought from its origins to the end of the Hellenistic period. This book was first published in 1920 and has since become a standard reference work in the field of philosophy. Stace presents an objective and critical account of the ideas of some of the most important philosophers of ancient Greece such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and how their theories have influenced the development of Western thought. He traces the evolution of Greek philosophy from its mythological beginnings through the pre-Socratics to the Sophists, the Socratic schools, the Platonists, and finally the Aristotelians. Stace examines the key concepts of each philosopher and the methods they used to develop their ideas. He also discusses their criticisms of their predecessors and the influence of Greek philosophy on subsequent thinkers. The book also addresses the cultural and historical context of each philosopher and their ideas, providing a well-rounded understanding of their works. This book is essential for anyone interested in the history of philosophy or the origins of Western thought. It is an excellent resource for students, scholars, and anyone seeking a deeper understanding of Greek philosophy.
