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.

This collection of essays, by Reding, in the emergent field of Sino-Hellenic studies, explores the neglected inchoative strains of rational thought in ancient China and compares them to similar themes in ancient Greek thought, right at the beginnings of philosophy in both cultures. Reding develops and defends the bold hypothesis that Greek and Chinese rational thinking are one and the same phenomenon. Rather than stressing the extreme differences between these two cultures - as most other writings on these subjects - Reding looks for the parameters that have to be restored to see the similarities. Reding maintains that philosophy is like an unknown continent discovered simultaneously in both China and Greece, but from different starting-points. The book comprises seven essays moving thematically from conceptual analysis, logic and categories to epistemology and ontology, with an incursion in the field of comparative metaphorology. One of the book's main concerns is a systematic examination of the problem of linguistic relativism through many detailed examples.

Tejera examines how Platonism--a philosophy imported from outside Plato's dialogues--changed our understanding of the dialogues. In the process they were dedramatized, dedialogized, and read or understood as if they were works expounding the pythagorizing system of doctrine known as Platonic Idealism.

Democratic societies run on opinion, and so reputation matters to their functioning. Issues pertaining to reptuation emerge in discussions ranging from the character of political candidates to the image nation-states project to domestic and foreign audiences. But reputation is also a cause of concern. We worry that political appearances are highly artificial, stage-managed affairs; that politicians merely pretend to care about their constituents; and that the rhetoric of "people power" is mere window-dressing for what is, in fact, rule by elites. In short, we tend to think of reputation as the business of the few, rather than the many. In Recovering Reputation, Andreas Avgousti considers the modern problem of reputation by turning to the dialogues of Plato, to demonstrate that reputation is not only an issue for political elites, but that it is a quality that helps the wider citizenry to cohere, bringing together citizens and non-citizens. Plato shows elites, both citizens and non-citizens, engaging non-elites either by undermining their opinion or by challenging it. But when elites in Plato's writings challenge (rather than merely undermine) popular opinion they still seek their public's praise. Avgousti argues that reputation is worth thinking about because it is a power that circulates among the many, linked to and sustained by myths and rumors, and it is a power that the many exercise through the social mechanisms of praise and blame. In this way, Avgousti illustrates that reputation is something that can destabilize normative ideas while still being a powerful force in our democratic politics. In working through Plato's writings, Recovering Reputation expands our understandings of reputation's potential in democratic contexts.
