Werner Jaeger's highly-acclaimed work, Paideia, seeks to explain the interaction between the historical process by which Greek character was formed and the intellectual process by which the Greeks constructed their ideal of the human personality. Each volume was written as an independent unit, [Vol 1--Archaic Greece, The Mind of Athens; Vol 2--In Search of the Divine Centre; Vol 3--The Conflict of Cultural Ideas in the Age of Plato], but taken together they are an integrated study of Hellenism and Greek cultural tradition. Jaeger's monumental study forms a timeless examination of the foundations of Western Civilization.
