Yep, it's crib notes abridged from his far more extensive and impressive opus Die Philosophie der Griechen in ihrer geschichtlichen Entwicklung—and I'm always soliloquizing about drinking directly from the source, in lieu of ingesting these exegetical works filtered through the inevitable personal ideologies and distortions of their respective authors; and yet Zeller just writes so goddamn limpidly and eloquently—those nineteenth century Germans were the fucking bomb in this particular area, all ...more

A classic overview of Greek philosophy, from the Pre-Socratics through Plato, Aristotle, Stoicism, Epicureanism and other schools of the Hellenistic period, and all the continuations of same in the period of the Roman Empire. In the latter period, the most important development was the rise of Neoplatonism beginning with Plotinus.
