Wine & Philosophy: A Symposium on Thinking and Drinking

Title: Wine & Philosophy
Edited By: Fritz Allhoff
Publisher: Blackwell Publishing
Wine and philosophy have long had a symbiotic relationship, extending back toward the origins of both. Some of the earliest archeological evidence that we have for the existence of wine comes from the Neolithic period in modern Armenia and northern Iran; a pottery jar coated with wine residue has been dated to 5400 BCE. By 2500 BCE, wine was being cultivated on Crete, and probably on mainland Greece as well. But the period of time that I want to call to attention is the fifth and fourth centuries BCE when Greek philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle, laid the foundations of what would become Western culture. Wine undoubtedly played an important social role during this time and, by extension, has had a significant impact on our own culture and history.
