Professor Robert C. Bartlett of Emory University offers 36 half-hour lectures on the three pillars of Western philosophical thought: Socrates, his student Plato, and Plato's student Aristotle. These ancient thinkers established and illuminated the main lines of philosophy, posing the essential questions about justice, virtue, happiness, and the "good life” that have continued to occupy us down to the present age. Professor Bartlett is a wonderful guide through this potentially tricky terrain. His presentation style is lively, his diction clear. And most satisfying of all, his argument is plain spoken and clarifying. Even if you're new to the subject of ancient philosophy, this lecture set, which is remarkably free of academic jargon, will open the door to the most important ideas of the ancient Greeks.
