This book presents a historical and critical study of the development of moral philosophy over 2,000 years, from ancient Greece to the Reformation. Starting with the seminal ideas of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, it looks through the centuries that follow, introducing each of the thinkers it discusses with generous quotations from their works. The book offers not only careful interpretation but critical evaluation of what they have to offer philosophically.
