A Short History of Greek Philosophy (Illustrated) By John Marshall
eBook (ePub): $1.99

More > coasts of Asia Minor, with four magnificent harbours and a strongly defensible position, it gathered to itself much of the great overland trade, which has flowed for thousands of years eastward and westward between India and the Mediterranean; while by its great fleets it created a new world of its own along the Black Sea coast. Its colonies there were so numerous that Miletus was named 'Mother of Eighty Cities.' From Abydus on the Bosphorus, past Sinope, and so onward to the Crimea and the Don, and thence round to Thrace, a busy community of colonies, mining, manufacturing, ship-building, corn-raising, owned Miletus for their mother-city. Its marts must therefore have been crowded with merchants of every country from India to Spain, from Arabia to Russia;"< Less

“What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god”... More > said William Shakespeare (1564-1616 AD). These oft-cited words were written not long after Humanist thought discovered the ancient philosopher Protagoras (c. 490-420 BC) and understood him in a new key: “Man is the measure of all things: of all things which are, that they are and of things which are not that they are not.” It had been a long journey up to that point from the concept that water is the nature and originating principle of all things (Thales of Miletus c. 620-546 BC).
