Retrieving the Ancients tells the story of the first philosophers in the West. * A clear and engaging introduction to ancient Greek philosophy. * Tells the story of the first philosophers in the West, from Thales to Aristotle. * Has a strong sense of narrative drive. * Treats the history of ancient Greek philosophy dialectically, as a conversation in which each thinker responds to and moves beyond his predecessors. * Argues that the works of the ancients are as valuable today as ever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Over and above this, the book succeeds in demonstrating the relevance of some of the most central Greek concerns to both current philosophy and the history of ideas in general." (Classical Review, 2007) "This is a jewel of a book... A must for everyone." (Journal of Classics Teaching) "The best written and most lucidly argued single volume survey of ancient Greek philosophy... a book that manages to be bothe philosophically sophisticated yet accessible to undergraduates" (Journal of Ancient Philosophy)
