Greek Philosophy, Thales to Plato
by John Burnet
Publisher: MacMillan 1914
Number of pages: 388
The author's chief aim has been to assist students who wish to acquire a firsthand knowledge of what Plato actually says in the dialogues of his maturity. So long as they are content to know some thing of the Republic and the earlier dialogues, Platonism must be a sealed book to them. John Burnet is best known for his work on Plato.

Peter Caws provides a fresh treatment of some of the most vexing problems in the philosophy of science: explanation, induction, causality, evolution, discovery, artificial intelligence, and the social implications of technological rationality.
by Alfred Weber - Longmans, Green
The author's knowledge of the subject is thorough and extensive, his judgment sound, his manner of expression simple, clear, and precise. The history of philosophy is conceived as an evolution, as a process from the simple to the complex.

The philosophers of ancient Greece have fascinated thinking persons for centuries, and their writings have been the key influences on the Western civilization. The works of Plato and Aristotle have defined the questions for subsequent generations.
