Ancient Greek philosophy arose in the 6th century BC and continued throughout the Hellenistic period and the period in which Greece and most Greek-inhabited lands were part of the Roman Empire. Philosophy was used to make sense out of the world in a non-religious way. It dealt with a wide variety of subjects, including astronomy, mathematics, political philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, ontology.

    During this time, the Homeric epics held a place in Greek society equivalent to what the Bible holds in some modern societies. They were stories which every Greek knew. The words of the gods control the fates of armies in those epics, and so the societies of ancient Greece built their laws around their perceptions of gods' law or nomos (Greek). Through Rhetoric and Power, Nathan Crick dramatizes the history of rhetoric by explaining its origin and development in Classical Greece beginning the oral displays of Homeric eloquence in a time of kings following its ascent to power during the age of Pericles and the Sophists, and ending with its transformation into a rational discipline with Aristotle in a time of literacy and empire.

Griggs and company, ), by L. Brédif, trans. by M. MacMahon and M. MacMahon (page images at HathiTrust). This book addresses the political aspects of fifth-century Athenian tragedies, setting them in their immediate historical context.
