Examined Lives : Twelve Great Thinkers and the Search for Wisdom, from Socrates to Nietzsche Paperback

Description

Who are we? How should we live? Professor James Miller introduces twelve great philosophers who dedicated their lives to answering these questions.

From Plato, who risked his reputation to tutor a tyrant, to Seneca, the philosopher of temperance who accumulated one of the greatest fortunes in Rome, to Kant, who privately wrestled with hypochondria while publicly advocating arch-rationality, each had a unique approach to examining life.

Here is a fascinating insight into the ideals that have guided us for centuries, and those who have fought passionately to live up to them.
