Illustrated to Think Like God by Arnold Hermann

Book Description

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.

Plato's 'Parmenides' by Arnold Hermann Plato's 'Parmenides', Paperback (September 2010)

This translation is the result of a collaboration between Arnold Hermann and Sylvana Chrysakopoulou. Heeding the challenge of balancing intelligibility with faithfulness - while maintaining sufficient consistency to allow the discernment of technical terms - great pains have been taken to secure both accuracy and accessibility.

To Think Like God by Arnold Hermann To Think Like God, Hardback (December 2004)
