Ancient Philosophy

Some of the best known philosophers of the East and West come from the Ancient World. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle laid the foundation for Western thought, while Confucius, Laozi and Buddha would ignite several of the great spiritual traditions of the East.

From the Pre-Socratic to the Sophists, Stoics and Epicureans, Hellenized Judaism, Platonic Christianity and mystical Neoplatonism, Greek and Roman philosophy provides a rich tapestry of thought about the Universe and how we live our lives.
