About this title:

Synopsis: Fascinating illustrations contribute to this illuminating account of how and why philosophy emerged and make it a must-read for any inquisitive thinker unsatisfied with prevailing assumptions on this timely and highly relevant subject. By taking the reader back to the Greek colonies of Southern Italy more than 500 years B.C.E., the author, with unparalleled insight, tells the story of the Pythagorean quest for otherworldly knowledge-a tale of cultism, political conspiracies, and bloody uprisings that eventually culminate in tragic failure. The emerging hero is Parmenides, who introduces for the first time a technique for testing the truth of a statement that was not based on physical evidence or mortal sense-perception, but instead relied exclusively on the faculty we humans share with the gods: the ability to reason.

Review: Hermann's book brings Parmenides to life through lucid explanations and an incisive use of quotations from Parmenides and his contemporaries, offering both scholars and lay readers a 21st-century consideration of an ancient thinker. It succeeds admirably, shedding a classical light on our own age as well as revealing lively intellect of the past"". - Publisher's Weekly
