All that the writer of a book like this can hope to do is to persuade others to undertake that study by interesting them in the problems with which it deals, and by offering a few suggestions which may help to an understanding of it.
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.
