Greek Rationalism Rationalism is a logical viewpoint that "regards reason as the chief source and test of knowledge." This new and innovative form of thinking allowed scholars to look into human behaviors, from logical systems of ethics in daily life, and distinguish knowledge from opinion.

It is clear that Professor Ahrensdorf is familiar with the texts and the literary criticism. What makes this work exceptional is that he weighs the words and deeds (the action) judiciously in coming to his conclusions that Sophocles is closer to Socrates as a seeker of wisdom.5/5.
