What is The Essential Greeks?

What if I told you that the lives of the ancient Greeks could become so familiar to you that you begin to think of these men, not as obscure authors, but as long lost friends?

What if I told you that there was a way to easily discover the timeless lessons of antiquity and apply them to your own life?

And that you could begin doing just that…today. You could begin to improve your outlook on life…nurture your sense of self…energize the vibrancy of your most important asset – your mind – starting right now.

You would see the classics and the authors of these texts in a whole new light. A full foundation and understanding of the most important ancient Greeks from Homer to Aristotle could be yours…

A path is beckoning you this very moment. A path to wisdom, happiness and better living.

My name is Anya Leonard and I’m the Co-Founder of Classical Wisdom.
I would like to talk to you about a way that you can, at long last, truly understand the life, times, and literature of the most essential Greek thinkers. In doing so, you will attain a higher understanding of the classical texts and learn things about the ancient world that few people will ever be privileged to know.
You can be different ...

These are but a few small instances of knowledge that would go unknown by the typical thinker, the type of person who only looks at the surface level material… 

You, however, can understand and comprehend the literature and history of the ancient world in a way that few will ever know. The way in which you can learn more and understand more deeply than you have ever before in your entire life is now easier than you think.

For Instance, Did you know... 


It was only after being shamefully exiled that the historian, Thucydides was able to fulfill his History of the Peloponnesian War?

Aristotle, the great philosopher, was also the tutor of a young Alexander the great, perhaps the closest example we have of Plato’s Philosopher King?

That Aeschylus, the legendary playwright, was almost killed on stage when he revealed the mysteries of a religious cult?

Or did you know that some believe that The Odyssey, one of the greatest masterpieces of the Western world, was actually written by a woman?

Classical Wisdom Weekly is proud to introduce The Essential Greeks… the most comprehensive way to learn all the history, literature, and lessons of the ancient Greek thinkers.

We made sure to research and compile a list of the nine most celebrated ancient Greek writers, historians, philosophers, and tragedians. These are the men who were the founding fathers of their disciplines and whose works would be the building blocks for over two thousand years of intellectual progress.

Moreover, we’ve taken the most timeless lessons from these thinkers and presented them into ten, documentary style video lessons. 

Broken up into four chapters each, you will learn the history behind the life and works of…

What Do YOU get in The Essential Greeks

Lauren H.
“I love how the Essential Greeks have put everything in place for me. I have studied and read about the Ancients for a while, but it was all scattered. Bits here, bits there. Now, everything makes so much more sense, I understand the works in the proper context and order. Thank you so much!”
Mark B. 
“I have found your material to be interesting and entertaining and very useful in teaching my Rhetoric in Western Thought class at my university.”
