Re: Classical Greek Recommended Word Processing Software

In both Windows and OS X you can type in Ancient Greek after enabling the polytonic greek keyboard in your system's preferences. For those who use OS X and find typing diacriticals cumbersome, you can always use Typinator to do just that for you. You'll type the word without any accent, and it will ...

Re: Greek literature paperbacks

Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics has several editions. I. Bywater's in the OCT collection is the standard, but it has no commentary or explanation whatsoever. For that I would recommend John Burnet's edition, which freely available at archive.org

Re: Intermediate Greek readers Lucian

I read Lucian's True Stories through the Nimis & Hayes edition. It had a couple mistakes but it was a fun book and surprisingly intelligent. I didn't get most of the philosophical references. Here is a helpful supplement to the text which includes references to Smyth: http://dcc.dickinson.edu/lucia...

Re: I can't believe I am letting myself in for this again.

I almost went down that very same road: german idealism (even learnt german for that matter). Fortunately, or not, I stuck to Aristotle and that is where I am now :) Reading (or trying to) the ethics in greek. Beautiful text. Sometimes overly synthetic, but still fun.
