Begun in 2017 after recording a Scholé Sisters episode with Eric Hall ("Philosophy for Mommies"), where he mentioned them. It wasn't the first time I'd heard Jaeger's books mentioned, so I hit "buy" on Amazon mid-recording. Brandy ordered them shortly thereafter and we have done an intermittent recorded book club on it for the last 2 years. In two years, we've discussed 7 chapters.
From Amazon: “Werner Jaeger’s classic three-volume work, originally published in 1939, is now available in paperback. Paideia, the shaping of Greek character through a union of civilization, tradition, literature, and philosophy is the basis for Jaeger’s evaluation of Hellenic culture. Volume I describes the foundation, growth, and crisis of Greek culture during the archaic and classical epochs, ending with the collapse of the Athenian empire.”
