The Traveller's Guide to Classical Philosophy Paperback / softback


In this clear and evocative account, John Gaskin unfolds the thinking about nature, life, death and other worlds that informed the culture and society of the Classical world, drawing out its interest for modern readers.

Witty sketches and diagrams enliven the story, which runs from Homeric Greece to the banning of pagan religions in ad 391.

The book concludes with a gazetteer describing notable sites and the people and ideas connected with them, making it an ideal companion for visitors to Classical ruins and for all armchair travellers curious to explore life's big questions.
