Summary
A detailed look at the life and teachings of Socrates and his pupil Plato, and at the world of the two founding fathers of history --Herodotus and Thucydides. Their work exemplifies the vital curiosity of the Greeks about the wellspring of human behavior, the nature of man, and his place in the world around him. Christopher Burstall's conversations with Greek scholar Kenneth Dover are interspersed with art works, scenes from modern Greece, shots of ancient ruins and dramatized scenes and monologues
