    1. William Keith Chambers Guthrie was a Scottish classical scholar, best known for his History of Greek Philosophy, published in six volumes between 1962 and his death.

    2. A History of Greek Philosophy 3.2: Socrates, W.K.C. Guthrieعنوان: سقراط؛ نویسنده: دبلیو.کی.سی. گاتری؛ مترجم: حسن فتحی؛ تهران، فکر روز، 1376، در 335 ص؛ شابک: 9645838630؛ موضوع: فلسفه و فیلسوفان یونان قرن 5 پیش از میلاد قرن 20 م

This in itself makes the study praiseworthy given that these details are dispersed throughout numerous ancient sources making it difficult to paint a coherent picture of Socrates. Thus, this book is more likely to be of interest and insight to the academician than the general reader. This is true even more so of the latter half of the book. Here Guthrie dives into uniquely [...]
