Product Description

Herodotus
Kolbe’s Greatest Books Volume 11

Herodotus (484-425 BC) was a Greek Historian known as the “Father of History” because if his systematic inductive, yet entertaining, approach to history and because of wide use of sources, albeit sometime specious sources, that was an anomaly in the fifth century BC.  In his “Histories” he presents a vast array of geopolitical, psychological, and situational knowledge in an attempt to pinpoint and determine the causes of the Persian Wars and other wars with barbaric peoples.

Herodotus is of special import because he is, to this day, the primary source of ancient Greek history. “Kolbe’s Greatest Books” authors who relied on his Histories include Josephus, Cicero, Aristotle, and Plutarch.
