Summary:Radical and revisionary in nature, this work challenges many of the long cherished myths about the influence of Classical Hellenic philosophy on the tradition of Western thought. Tracing the historical origin and the critical development of Hellenic philosophy from vague beginnings to its classical maturity and fruition, this book argues that dignified nobility, critique and freedom of expression defined the character of Classical Hellenic philosophy.
