Overview

Ancient Greek Philosophy (Economic Edition) “To find yourself, think of yourself”. These are the words of Socrates, one of the pioneers of Greek Philosophy. Philosophy comes from the Greek words “Phylos” meaning - to love and “Sophie” meaning - wisdom, thus literally meaning “to love wisdom”. Origin of Philosophy can be traced back to Ancient Egyptian and Indian Civilizations. Even before Greek Philosophy evolved, Indian Philosophy had taken shape and flourished widely. Ancient India, once a commercial hub, had trade connections with many other countries. Ideas and thoughts were also traded and had influenced much in Greek philosophy. Philosophers taught rhetoric, astronomy, cosmology, geometry to their disciples. Their teachings were based on arguments or teachings about any subject in Universe. They have contributed much to the society and their quotes are thought provoking. This book makes a modest attempt to present you with the quotes of Greek Philosophers -Socrates, Thales, Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, Anaxagoras, Epicurus, Democritus, Heraclitus, Parmenides, Chrysippus, Antisthenes, Gorgias, Empedocles, Anaximander, Cleanthes, Diogenes, Zeno of Citium, Protagoras, Epictetus, Xenophanes, Zeno of Elea, Theophrastus, Xenocrates, Melissus of Samos and Proclus.
