A comparative study of what the most influential writers of Ancient Greece and China thought it meant to have knowledge and whether they distinguished knowledge from other forms of wisdom. It surveys selected works of poetry, history and philosophy from the period of roughly the eighth through to the second century BCE, including Homer's "Odyssey," the ancient Chinese "Classic of Poetry," Thucydides' "History of the Peloponnesian War," Sima Qian's "Records of the Historian," Plato's "Symposium," and Laozi's "Dao de Jing and the writings of Zhuangzi." The intention, through such juxtaposition, is to introduce the foundational texts of each tradition which continue to influence the majority of the world's population.
