Greek Popular Morality: In The Time Of Plato And Aristotle

Greek Popular Morality in the Time of Plato and Aristotle - Kenneth James Dover A very strangely organized book -- short sections on various 'topics' with lots of examples -- but rich in insight. Recommended for anyone who wants to gain a granular sense of the mentalité of 4th cen. Athens. K.J. Dover, of course, is a (justly) celebrated scholar.
