It was the awakening of the scientific mind, the opening of the spirit of man to the nature of inquiry, and the beginnings of quantification and experimentation. Early Greek Science: Thales to Aristotle and Greek Science After Aristotle by G.E.R. Lloyd are studies of Greek science from Thales of Miletus in 585 B.C. to Galen of Pergamum in 180 A.D and the decline of ancient science.

i've used this and its companion volume with undergraduates, and they are very good Not a substitute for Dicks (Ancient Greek Astronomy) or Neugebauer, of course But good introductins, and very, very readable.

The construction of points is so clear to understand. Very helpful for novice in philosophy like me.

Required reading in Classics mandatory for Biology students at University of Alberta. Covers much of the early Greek and Egyptian philosophy.

A clear overview of the main people and ideas (that we know about) in early Greek natural philosophy.
