These masterworks contain ideas and ideals that have shaped the West and impacted the rest of the world. The very brilliance of the Classical and Western tradition cannot be set apart from its radically innovative methodology.  Veering away from all other cultures, which were subsumed in the will of the gods and bound by immemorial custom, the Classical Greek thinkers and their medieval and modern descendants dared to reason intellectually about the meaning of the universe.  Nor have they stopped; twenty-five centuries later, philosophers still reflect with Socrates on the implications of thought and action and continue to probe the mysteries of creation.  These masterpieces set forth the enduring principles of continuity and innovation that have transformed the world almost beyond recognition.
