THUCYDIDES ON HISTORY

“History is philosophy teaching by examples.”

Thucydides, The History of the Peloponnesian War

The History of the Peloponnesian War* in three volumes, translated by S. T. Bloomfield, annotated from the best commentators and historians, and prefixed with the Life of Thucydides by the same author:

Volume I, Volume II, Volume III.

* The pictured quote was attributed to Thucydides in the 3rd century AD but does not appear in The History of the Peloponnesian War; it was perhaps found in other writings of his which have since been lost.
