Philosophy reading list

Hi all,

I have just started reading Aristotle’s The Politics and am loving it.

But, is there any recommended reading list out there? I mean if I want to study Ancient Greek Philosophy in my “spare time”, what is the recommended reading order?

If I were going to read old manuscripts, I’d skip the Ancient Greeks and focus on the Ancient Geeks: Archimedes, Aristarchus, Hipparchus, Euclid, Eratosthenes and so on. They came up with vastly more interesting and fruitful ideas than anything Plato or Aristotle could dream of. :slight_smile:

There is an introductory philosophy book recommended here—>. I have not read it personally, but this may be what you are looking for.

I came accross this when looking for things to keep my mind active in retirement.

Thanks, only Euclid is on the list I want to work through. Looking forward to it!

I want to read the books, not books about the books! Thanks for the advice though :wink: :slight_smile:

I see on iTunes university they have several philosophical courses including the ancient Greeks Like Aristotle The free to download.
