    Story
    "A reading of selected works rather than an intrude"
    What disappointed you about Ancient Greek Philosophy?

    It consisted of a selection of reading, with minimal commentary. Probably a ratio of 15 minutes of reading to 1 minute of commentary. The discussion was primarily a list that here were things in historical order.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably a review of history.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    What character would you cut from Ancient Greek Philosophy?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    Not a very good introduction. Better to listen to some of the other authors.

    "Superb invitation to clear thinking"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a superb overview of Greek philosophy. What makes this audiobook truly outstanding is the narrator, who is clear and easy to listen to, and also the wealth of selections from the Greek philosophers themselves.

    If you want to start thinking with more clarity and living with greater wisdom this is a great place to start!

    "A very good listening"

    A very enjoyable read. Excellent narration - I felt like i was in a classroom with the philosophers teaching.

    The part on aristotle was especially enjoyable.

    I was browsing some other readings by the Griffith brothers. I believe they'll be on my wish list.
