The Characters Of Theophrastus by Theophrastus ( - 0). Translated by Charles E. Bennett and William A. Hammond.

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-characters-of-theophrastus-by-theophrastus/
Theophrastus ( c. 371 – c. 287 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher, successor to Aristotle in the Peripatetic School. He wrote on many topics: biology, geology, physics, metaphysics, psychology, ethics, logic – and more. His book Characters… contains thirty brief, vigorous, and trenchant outlines of moral types, which form a most valuable picture of the life of his time, and in fact of human nature in general. They are the first recorded attempt at systematic character writing. “Apart from slight variations of local coloring and institutions, the descriptions of the old Greek philosopher might apply almost as well to the present inhabitants of London or Boston as to the Athenians of 300 B.C.” This edition contains an extensive and informative introduction to the man and his thought. ( Book Introduction, Wikipedia, and David Wales)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58242
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

David,
Is there a reason you show the translators as "WAH and others" and not "Charles E. Bennett and William A. Hammond?"

Hi Dave, The form was acting goofy about the translators when I was filling in names. Wouldn't accept first one then the other. I finally thought I had got it sorted out but I guess not. Both translators should be listed. Sorry for the problem (I've never had that problem with the form before).
Peace, David

I've changed the first post to read "Charles E. Bennett and William A. Hammond." The Project Screen already had them listed.
