Concepts are presented as articulated by key figures including Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Heraclitus, Pythagoras, and the Milesian and Eleatic philosophers -- in combination with quotations drawn from Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Physics, and other influential sources -- make this program an excellent tool for building a solid understanding of Western philosophy."
