In which I proceed to mix up a lot of dead Greek guys who may or may not have just been full of hot air.

ETA:
It seems weird to rate a book that is really just a compilation of a lot of really important people's really important ideas. But yeah. It's a mixed bag.

The Pre-Socratics: Generally really dull and confusing, mostly because what survives of their writings is really just a bunch of fragments. Sorry, guys.

Socrates: Cool dude. Seemed like kind of a know-it-all asshole though, so I totally understand why he was pissing off the Athenians.

Plato: I liked reading his works the best. He did have some really weird (and just plain messed-up) ideas, along with the really good ones. See his noble lie in The Republic.

Aristotle: Gets a bit technical to read sometimes, especially when he talks about nature. I liked his Nicomachean Ethics, but not so much the other stuff.

One of the really interesting aspects of my ancient philosophy class (for me at least) was discussing how the difficulties in translating ancient Greek to English sometimes distort the meaning of the text. For example, in Greek, "virtue" literally means "to do well". So you have to keep that kind of stuff in mind when you're reading before you dismiss ideas altogether.
