HOW TO BE Life Lessons from the Early Greeks

by | Read by Leighton Pugh

History • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Scintillating poetry from Sappho and examinations of Pythagoras's and Homer's lives and ideas are just some of the material that makes up this fascinating audiobook. Narrator Leighton Pugh introduces the literature, art, and thinking of these and other early Greeks. He connects their lives and theories with those of some of our Western thinkers whose own philosophies are rooted in these very same theories. Pugh's clear, articulate English-accented voice ties together the author's explanations of several Greek hypotheses and makes them clear and understandable, even to the unfamiliar. Pugh captures the drama of the principals' lives and the power of their words and ideas. Listeners who want an enjoyable journey through early Greek philosophy and literature will find this performance inspiring and accessible.
