"Not only were the ancient Greeks founders of Western philosophy, but they also invented the term philosophy, most likely dating back to Pythagoras in the late sixth century BC. Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, Euclid, and Thales are but a few of the better-known thinkers of ancient Greece. During the amazingly fertile period from the middle of the first millennium BC to the middle of the first millennium AD, the world saw the rise of science, schools of thought, and - many believe - the birth of modern civilization. Historical Dictionary of Ancient Greek Philosophy presents the history of Greek philosophy and the philosophers who made it famous through a chronology, an introduction, a glossary, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important philosophers, concepts, issues, and events."--BOOK JACKET.
