Parmenides and the Way of Truth, Paperback / softback Book

Parmenides and the Way of Truth Paperback / softback


Parmenides was a philosopher, healer, and spiritual guide in fifth-century BC Elea, a Greek outpost on the western coast of Italy.

Around 450 BC he and a young Socrates engaged in a debate on the nature of reality, later immortalized by Plato in "The Parmenides," the dialogue that re-created that meeting.

Richard Geldard s inspiring account brings new life and contemporary understanding to Parmenides, allowing us to understand his thought and benefit from his wisdom.

Richard Geldard earned his PhD in dramatic literature and classics at Stanford University.

He is the author of "Remembering Heraclitus" and "The Traveler's Key to Ancient Greece.""
