One of the most important philosophical publications in recent years ... precious and beautifully written. * Apeiron Journal *
[I] thoroughly enjoyed the author's deep knowledge of Greek and Roman philosophy and close reading of texts and key terms ... Provides a meticulous and fascinating reading of schole in Aristotelian texts. * Heythrop Journal *
This book is a must-read not only for students of Greek philosophy, but it is an eye-opener for all of us who have been perplexed as to why the notion of human fulfillment in our culture curiously has come to elude our grasp. * Peter Hadreas, Professor of Philosophy, San Jose State University, USA *
The study of Ancient schole is a much-neglected and extremely foundational topic. Anyone interested in Ancient theories of politics, eudaimonia, and culture in general simply must read this book. * Audrey L. Anton, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Western Kentucky University, USA *
