Sofia Classics Library, whose name derives from the Greek word for wisdom, seeks to revive a passion for the classics, cultivate a love of wisdom, and promote the good, the true, and the beautiful in literature, philosophy, and art. To this end, Sofia Classics Library publishes the philosophical and literary masterpieces that transcend time and inspire excellence.
