The Seven Sages of Ancient Greece: The lives and teachings of the earliest Greek philosophers; Thales • Pittacos • Bias • Solon • Cleobulos • Myson • Chilon

   
By Constantine Cavarnos

“This book had its beginning in a course on the Pre-Socratic Philosophers which I taught many years ago at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C. I discussed then the Seven Sages of Ancient Greece in the early part of the course. In teaching recently the Pre-Socratic Philosophers at the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, I augmented considerably what I had said in that part of the course. The result is the text of this book. [...]The present book is addressed to all persons who are lovers of perennial wisdom—of wisdom that can serve in every age and every country as a safe guide in one’s individual and public life.”
