            Philosophic Classics: Ancient Philosophy, Volume I

            Philosophic Classics: Ancient Philosophy, Volume I (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 7th New edition)

            • RRP: $235.00

            • In Stock At Publisher

            This 7th Edition of Philosophic Classics, Volume I: Ancient Philosophy includes essential writings of the most important Greek philosophers, along with selections from some of their Roman followers. In updating this edition, editor Forrest E. Baird has continued to follow the sam...e criteria established by the late-Walter Kaufmann when the Philosophic Classics series was first established: (1) to use complete works or, where more appropriate, complete sections of works (2) in clear translations (3) of texts central to the thinker's philosophy or widely accepted as part of the canon. To make the works more accessible to students, most footnotes treating textual matters (variant readings, etc.) have been omitted and important Greek words have been transliterated and put in angle brackets. In addition, each thinker is introduced by a brief essay composed of three sections: (1) biographical (a glimpse of the life), (2) philosophical (a resume of the philosopher's thought), and (3) bibliographical (suggestions for further reading). New to this edition: The following new readings: Plato's Gorgias and the addition of Book I of The Republic New complete translations of all of Plato's Apology, Phaedo, Euthyphro, and Crito and of Epicurus's Letter to Herodotus, Letter to Menoeceus, and Principal Doctrines. New translations or substantial sections of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics, Politics and Book IV of Metaphysics and of Marcus Aurelius's Meditations. Updated, annotated bibliographies reflecting the most recent scholarship on each thinker and philosophical school, with each now broken into two sections, one for beginning and another for advanced students

            The Art Of War
              

            The Art Of War (EPUB ebook)

            By Tzu, Sun

            This ancient Chinese military text dissects thirteen aspects of warfare from an strategical and intellectual point of view. Deploring the use of excess force causing economic and civilian losses while discussing strategies that are still relevant to modern warfare, the text conti...nues to resonate with readers around the world and has been considered fundamental in military doctrine for over two thousand years.The Art of War was first translated for the Western world in the late eighteenth century. The work is attributed to the ancient writer Sun Tzu (Sun Wu) and is thought to have been originally recorded at the end of the sixth century, B.C.E. However, due to its age Chinese historians contest whether or not the version of The Art of War we have today is a revised version of the original treatise.HarperTorch brings great works of non-fiction and the dramatic arts to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
