An Enlightened Dialogue

This course exposes the ideas of greek philosophers in a dialectic form. The thinkers are engaged in a dialogue, reacting from the ideas of his predecessors. The author examines the presocratic philosophers, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle in an understandable way and gives his insights about the many problems they posed. When exposing Socrates words, no distinction is made to adress the question about who is speaking (Socrates or Plato). The presupposition is that Socrates speaks. Plato and Aristotle works are presented as the culmination of greek wisdom. The sophist objections and thought are always mentioned. In the course they served as a bridge with modern concepts and thought. The work gives a clear exposition of greek philosophy. One will profit listening to it!
