Welcome to the Wide World of Articles in Ancient Philosophy, Where the Excitement of Intellectual Discovery Awaits!
This developing website has a twofold purpose: to both review existing philosophical articles, such as those concerning Plato’s Forms (see site Menu) and serve as a ground for original essays and translations. Eventually, the site aspires to become a knowledge bank, especially for the furthering of the knowledge and understanding of ancient philosophy. In particular, it is hoped that by reviewing existing articles, some of which are in the public domain and some are not, better access can be attained to the vast knowledge collected in academic philosophical journals and made accessible to students who might want to research a particular topic across a spectrum of quality articles.
To that end, an original publication of a Reader’s Guide to the early books of Plato’s Republic has also been presented here..
