The Physical World Of The Greeks (princeton Legacy Library)
Tags: Samuel Sambursky

Professor Sambursky presents a lucid and absorbing survey of the scientific ideas of the Greeks, showing how they constructed their world-view. He establishes what the Greeks thought and how much they knew, why they thought as they did, and why they did not learn more. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
