THIS is the second volume (the first dealt with the religion of Plato) of a notable comprehensive account of the Greek philosophical tradition. In Mr. More's view, it ends in scepticism, but arises to new life in Christianity. Two other volumes carrying on the tradition are promised. Mr. More writes with ease and distinction and the book is beautifully printed. The absence of an index seriously handicaps it as a book of reference.
